Quick Cards 2.0

Hello everyone! Erum here today and I am back again with a couple of quick cards to share with you.
Today we will be using dies to make quick cards.
I will be using this beautiful paper from the Ephemera pack to make my cards.
Let's get started!

Cut out your card front.

I chose to go with the butterflies die. Dont just randomly die cut the piece. Place the dies in a way that looks good and make sense. We will be using this as a front for one of our cards. 
We will end up with these two pretty pattern paper butterflies that we are going to use on our second card.

For my second card I cut out a piece of CS, punched one border to give it a pretty look.
Added some watercolor (randomly), keeping the center concentrated since we will be placing our butterflies there. 
I went with a slightly concentrated watercolour since my diecut butterflies ended up having no part of the floral pattern.
I also used one of my Tim Holtz layering stencils to add the mint colour that was on our pattern paper.
Here is how it looks, not great eh? We will be adding some black splatters to it later on and wait till we add the butterflies, it will all gel together.

I decided to make a shaker out of the first panel.

My cards were lacking sparkle so I decided to add holographic glitter randomly.

I know it looks a bit weird but it only looks this way in photos. In person it is clear, holographic.

I then arranged my cards on their bases, added some tidbits and sentiment dies.
Here is the end result.

I used a white pen to outline the butterflies so that they would stand out. 
I also added a bit of vellum to make the sentiment pop and cover part of the design.
The shimmery pink sequin is by Papericious. I just LOVE the sparkle on them!

Here is my second card. I added a light purple glitter strip along the lace border.

I hope you enjoyed today's post. 
Don't be afraid to use the papers with big, bold patterns.
