What a great way to start a Monday
as I help to kick-off a fun collaboration between
XYRON and GYPSY SOUL LASER CUTS
We will be sharing projects throughout the week!
For my project, I've crafted a 6X6 greeting card:
I grabbed some older Authentique Paper from my stash and a solid sheet of white
cardstock and Color Shine sprays from Heidi Swapp:
I also selected the "Evie" Oval Flourished Frame from Gypsy Soul and used it as a mat:
Add as much or as little of the spray as you'd like and allow to dry before cutting out.
Next, I chose four of the different butterflies, in various sizes, from the Butterflies and Dragonflies.
Each one was inked with colored chalk inks that matched with the patterned papers.
I placed the 3" Permanent Adhesive into the Xyron 5" Creative Station Lite and ran the pieces through.
Because there are so many openings in the butterflies, I used a piercing tool to gently rub away
the adhesive that had collected inside of the 'windows'. The adhesive will roll into a ball and then
can be easily discarded! This gives your butterflies a very clean look.
I used the Xyron Mega Runner to assemble the rest of the card's mats together.
With the close-up you can also see that I used the piercing tool to punch holes
into the flourish design. The butterflies were all stacked together to create a beautiful 3D centerpiece!
