Flights of Fancy

Another of my gorgeous Tim Holtz dies. I haven't had much time to play with these but managed a few cards with my trial runs:)
The die cuts the background as well as the delicate wing structure - perfect for playing around. You can create just with the detailed part (e.g. angel wings on a photo) or use both to create a stunning effect. With the Happy Birthday card I layered printed paper onto plain but you can easily do the reverse for a stunning effect. I can imagine using transparency for the delicate wings or some Glimmer Mist for a shimmery effect on the background.......mmmmmmmmmmm.............

The lovely crackle effect shows of beautiful on this grungeboard butterfly. You can even add some dimensional tape to the edges of the wing to give them a nice lift. A simple lacy border (EK's amazing punch!) just adds some detail to the cards.
I often create cards "hanging over" the edges - this does complicate the envelope part!!:) The solution is simple - I wrap my gift (sometimes normal brown book wrapping paper works beautifully - just add a little glimmer mist / mask / stamps) add a stunning ribbon or lace and simply slide the card on top of the gift. The card is part of the presentation - voila!!
Hope you have a weekend filled with LOTS of scrapping and loads of fun!
Happy scrappin'
