Make It Monday #157: DYI Cover Plates


Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and making your own cover plate styles with dies..

When I first watched this MIM, I wasn't sure I was going to participate.
Today, as I was making a few cards, I looked at my Beautiful butterfly dies and thought, Why Not!

I am THRILLED with how it turned out!
I didn't want to stamp my butterflies, I just cut some PTI polka dot paper with each butterfly. I almost always use the Filigree Border Die to cut a contrasting paper to make "wings" for my butterflies. I also use a strip of clear jewels for the 'bodies".

I LOVE the script Thank you from Keep It Simple: Thank You.

This card was actually easy to make once I figured out what I was doing. I will definitely be making more!!!

Thank you for looking at my blog!
