PTI 11th Anniversary-Day 7

Day 7 of Papertrey Ink's celebration of 11 years brings us 
another fun Challenge.

The Challenge:  Use Only Dies – No Stamps! 
The traditional gift for an 11th anniversary is steel, so in honor of this, today's challenge is to make a project using dies only – no stamps allowed! We can use our sentiment dies and Cover Plates.

My Card ~ 
I die cut the Butterfly Cover Plate out of  2 different purple cards stocks.  One was solid and one was glittery.  There is a page of journal cards in a lovely 12X12 pak of paper from Craft Smith called 'Serenity'. I never know what to do with those because I don't scrapbook, but this challenge seemed to be the perfect place to use one on my cards atop an embossed panel 😁.   Those butterflies are popped onto the card with a couple of 1/5 X 1/5" thick square tabs from Tombow giving them a real 3-D effect and they literally look like they fluttered onto the card (you can actually see the shadows in my picture). 
~~ This card will go to one of my teenage nieces who is pretty much a leader and not one to follow the pack 💓


  1. Beautiful butterfly card, Helen. so pretty.

  2. What a perfect journal card for your niece, and I’m sure she’ll love the beautiful butterflies, too! Well done, Helen.

  3. So pretty and the way the butterflies are off the edges of the card adds interest.

  4. Gorgeous card, I love the movement of the butterflies x
