This was an interesting card to make. The piece at the top left uses the 1 1/4" circle punch. I wrapped light pink organdy around it and put a mini glue dot on the knot and sprinkled dazzling diamonds on. For the top left I used my word window punch (several times) to create the opening that "hello" shows through. I used my Fiskars circle cutter to cut the big circle in the cs. I put the big black circle with the butterfly on the inside of the card so it would show through, same with hello. Hello has dazzling diamonds in the center of the "O". On the butterfly I also used dazzling diamonds but only on certain flowers and the antennas. IRL it sparlkes just enough. I kept thinking something was wrong and It was that it was too open. I guess because the circle was so large and then the opening from the word window punch. So... I added a sheet of actate to the inside left. I like the way the card is solid yet see through. I sponged pixie pink around the edges for effect.
Thanks so much for looking!
