Dimensional die cuts

The challenge at CAS Mix Up is to add some dimension to die cuts.
Here I cut a couple of butterflies in very thick card with some Bigz Movers and Shakers dies, I then triple embossed them in Black EP adding some Perfect Pearls powders over a layer of Versamark. Next I reheated the butterflies to make the powder molten once more and stamped with a Tim Holtz stamp with Brilliance Gold ink.

There really is some pretty texture on this butterfly, the sheen is lovely in the light. I embossed a little foliage behind the peek a boo die cut window and added a sentiment from Clearly Besotted.


  1. Wonderful dimension on those stunning butterflies. Gorgeous colourway and love the added dry embossing too. Thank you for joining in the CAS Mix Up Challenge with this stunning card x.

  2. Your butterflies are GORGEOUS, Chrissie. I have not tried this technique, but WOW! what an impact it made on your butterflies adding lots of dimension and such a beautiful pattern that shines with all the metallics. Great texture from your dry embossed leafy background too. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!
