February's crafty swap - Terri's parcel + an extra

Having chosen matt and layering for Pat's parcel it left me a choice of peel offs or die cutting for Terri's.  I wanted to do something a litle more than just a nestie shape so rummaged through my dies to see what I could find; perhaps I could find one I didn't use too often. is my Nellie Snellen corner die (two parts)....and .... and...

So this is the card I made from Terri's parcel.

I ran the backing paper through my cuttlebug with one of my embossing folders and then cut four corners using the Nellie Snellen corner dies.  I used the tag and ribbon that was also in the parcel and just mounted a stamped image in the centre of it.

My second card was a Christmas card but I had to take a bit more licence with this.  We have said that the cards need to contain at least one item from the swap parcel and so this card just uses the dark blue paper from the parcel and the rest is from my stash.  I cut down an old Christmas card and added some Stickles to make it glittery.  I used a die cut nestie label and stamped the greeting before distressing round the edges.  Voila.

I am entering this card in CHNC challenge 218: cut it up

 Finally, my extra card for this month.  The card that uses all three techniques and something from both parcels.


From Pat's parcel:  Backing paper; the patterned paper, the shiny paper behind the butterfly.
From Terri's parcel:  the green paper and the butterfly peel off.

I just die cut the patterned paper and layered up with the green card.  I mounted the butterfly on the shiny lilac paper and layered it onto a bit of card from my stash.
