January cardmaking - embossing with die cuts

For my second card for the class features embossed white backgrounds wrapped with fiber and  punchies and die cuts as the focal elements with small greetings. A very flexible kit!
For these two cards, I used a script and flourish embossing folders.  The butterfly was die cut, embellished with watercolour and finally I tied on silver cord to create the body and antenna.  The other card features an embossed heart die cut (SU) and an embossed heart punchie (SU) layered over the fiber. Made a few of these with red hearts for anyone who might want a Valentine's card.  Both have small laser printed greetings.
These kits featured hearts in other colours for anyone who was wanting anniversary cards.  The larger heart die cuts (SU) were overlaid with a metallic heart punchie (SU) and a coordinating heart punchie was added along with window punchie greetings(SU).  All kinds of options for putting together these kits.
These cards feature more elaborate focal elements created by layering die cuts and punchies and holding them together with a brad.  I used a doily die (SX) and cut two doilies - one yellow and one blue and then swapped the centers which I taped into place.  I added a flower punchie in a coordinating colour and held everything together using a small white button brad. Those are so cute!  The pink one has two pink flower die cuts, one silver flower die cut and then a pearly white punchie all held together with a large white brad.
All the focal elements were adhered to the card fronts using 3D foam tape which accommodates the bulk of the fiber very nicely.
