Simply Dressed

Bit of a late post here today, but better late than never!

I don't call myself a card maker even though yes I do make cards..not really sure what that's about, but with all the cards I've been making lately I think it's time to admit that I'm officially a card maker!

When I'm surfing the web (mostly Pinterest) for inspiration I find myself drawn to more simple cards, they just seem so elegant and classy.  I decided to create a simple card, keeping the colors neutral except for the Butterfly Wreath die to really make it the focal point.

Although I wanted the overall design of my card to be simple I didn't want it to be boring or flat, so I dressed up the Butterfly Wreath with a few extra touches.

The first step to dress it up was layering the butterflies with a different color paper, then I added a little sparkle with some Stickles. 

The I added these cute little white flowers finishing them off with some brown pearls.

As you can see by dressing your dies up with a few 'accessories' can take your die cut from flat to fabulous in no time!!

That's all for tonight, but be sure to join us tomorrow for our BLOG HOP!!
