Hello and Goodbye

Hi everyone,

I am sharing a card today that utilizes a new favorite technique - using cut files and filling in negative space with pattern paper. 

This is a cut file from the Silhouette shop. I hand cut the patterned paper from the #happy collection by Allison Kreft. 

It's such a fun and pretty collection!

I love the movement of this card. It's like a dizzying effect of enamel dots spinning around until it centers on the butterfly. 

You can grab this awesome collection and the enamel dots in the Paper Issues shop.

This is also a goodbye as it's my last blog post as part of the team here at PI! I've so loved my time here! I'll still be around our FB group, though. So, see you around!
