Bonus Day Homework and an Itty Bitty


Bonus Day at Clean and Simple Card Making 2 was all about dies. 
Some amazing projects were shared that inspired me to play with Papertrey Ink's
alpha dies and some washi tape. Here's my homework.


After taping some washi tape on a panel I die cut the word "hello", making sure
to save the little pieces from the "e" and "o". I mounted the panel to a kraft
card base with dimensional tape and added the inside portion of the letters.
The lavender butterfly was punched out of washi tape on cardstock.


The letters that were die cut were too pretty to throw away
so I adhered them to a 3x6" piece of kraft cardstock and scribbled in "friend"
with a white pigment pen. I added the leftover butterflies, punched out some 
washi tape hearts and drew in faux stitching with a white pigment pen.

I'll be entering this at Moxie Fab World's Make an Itty Bitty Card challenge.
Here's a shot of the itty bitty and its biggy.
The finished size is 3 x 3".


Thanks for stopping by!
