CottageCutz Butterfly Greetings


Hello everyone, and Happy Tuesday to all!
Today I'm sharing 3 mini greeting cards I designed for today's Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge. We were to use Gold and Cream, and the dessert option was to use a butterfly.
For my 3 Mini cards(Measure 3 1/2" x 3 1/2") I used CottageCutz Butterfly and Flowers die and cut it out in white, then distressed it with antique linen, and some gold ink around the edges. The darker edge is vintage photo. I also added some Viva Pearl Pen dots in cream color to the center of the butterfly.


 
For the Frame in the center I used CottageCutz Elegant frame die. I then layered the circles on top of it, and stamped the Sentiments from StampinUp! on top. I distressed the circles using gold ink
 
The back layer was done using Martha Stewart Punch around the page punches. For the Gold Vellum I used it on the background for my cards. Its from Paper Temptress.
 
I kept my cards pretty simple, as there is no embellishments, ribbon, or sewing on any of these. These came together quickly!

 
Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!
Hugs to all,

Flowering Vine Mini Cards

Hello everyone, today I wanted to share another set of Mini cards made using the CottageCutz Flowering Vine from the CottageCutz Petites Collection. Love this flowering vine, its absolutely Beautiful!
For the flowering Vine, I cut it out using White Card Stock, and then colored the flowers in 2 different Copic Pinks. For the greenery part, I used 2 different green copic pens. The Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and so are the Buttons I used. These were super easy to make, and take no time at all. They measure 4 x 4" and I used random sentiments from the Greeting Farm on this set! 
 
 Embellishments consist of Ribbon and Buttons only!
Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!
Hugs to all,

CottageCutz Mushroom House/All Occasion Cards

Hello everyone, today I'm sharing another set of Gift Cards I have created this past week. I have been addicted to making these, they are super fun!!! For this set I used the Darling CottageCutz Mushroom House.
 
For this die cut, I used white Card stock and then colored the house using copic markers. I thought it would be cute to have it colored in different colors. Next I used some AC design paper in polka dots. Mushrooms always look so cute with polka dots. I also used some Really Reasonable Ribbon Polka dot ribbon, and some little WOC flowers. Lastly I added some buttons for my embellishments.
Design Paper is from American Crafts, its a Large stack of pattern paper in different colors.

 Love how easy these little cards are to make. 2 of them measure 4 x 4, and the center one measures 3 1/2 x 3 1/2.

Thank you again for stopping by and taking a peek today!
Hugs to all,

 Hello everyone, today I wanted to share some mini cards I have been working on as gifts for Christmas, using the Darling CottageCutz Dies. For this Gift Set I used the Vintage Car from the Victorian Release. These cards measure 3 1/2 x 3 1/2.
I absolutely LOVE the CottageCutz Victorian Release, as there are so many super cute dies in this release. For the Vintage Car I cut it out using Black Card stock, super easy!! The white frame is done using a MS Punch around the page. Lastly I added some Really Reasonable Ribbon, and buttons to embellish my cards. These were super fast and easy to make! I will be sharing some more gift sets shortly! :)
