Here are my new butterfly dies:
The large blue die is by Marianne Designs - Creatables
The pink set of three are by Joy Crafts
I have cut and embossed the JC dies using a printed vellum. You need to place a piece of scrap paper over the vellem as this give a crisp cut. After embossing, I left the cut in the die and rubbed an ink pad over to show off the design. The dies all have a different pattern and you can see the sizes now they are cut.
This is the Marianne die. Much bigger! When cutting this die, I again used vellum, but instead of scrap paper I used a DP, so getting 2 flutterbys! Layered this is how they look. I have been told that some of the Wizard machines don't like it, but the Bug (well my Bug) does! I love this lacey look - you could use it to make an aperture card and place a patterned paper inside in the same way as my tutorial card on Monday. Think I'll have to have a go at this! Edit: Tried this - it didn't work, but I managed to do something with the cut out. (See above post).
