I've got to admit, this one took an awful long time for an idea to formulate - I couldn't get my head into repeat zone using just one die. As it is, I used a layering die set (which I'm counting as one) and repeated it.
All dies and stamps are Tim Holtz. I die cut the base butterflies then dipped them in spritzed Distress Inks, and cut the top layers out of black card. The base panel is a mop up of some of the colours used.
I only adhered the layers down the body of the butterflies so that I could bend them up slightly. I'm really happy with how it all turned out.
Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday challenge blog for some more fabulous inspiration from the team, and our surprise party guests, and play along with us. If repeat die cutting isn't your thing, you can play along with any birthday-themed project.
