A CAS DL card for a change

Isn't it odd how you may have a vague idea of what you want to make for a challenge and then another challenge comes along and as soon as you see it, you know how you want to interpret the first. That's what happened with this card.


I'd already seen that the theme for CAS-ology was Odd  and had decided I simply HAD to use this Dylusions sentiment, but then along came the Butterfly Challenge where the theme is Vertical and/or Damson and immediately my vague idea gelled into a certainty.

We hardly ever make DL shaped cards in a CAS style, do we? And yet they can be very striking. Must make a note to myself to do it more often. The die I've used is the old familiar Cuttlebug Butterfly, and for the middle one I used an old scrap of parchment. It is very thin, so rather than use a shim I folded it double, only really expecting the top layer to cut. Both layers cut beautifully so now I have another rainbow-spotted butterfly to use on another project. Two for the price of one - bargain!

  5. Gorgeous card, Jane. Very clever design for the challenges. I rarely think to make a DL card, I'm not sure why, because as you've shown they can be very striking. xx
