CAS Card Making: Day 3 - Tone On Tone

Day 3 of the Clean And Simple Card Making Online Course had Jennifer McGuire showing how she used a die to make a tone-on-tone background!  I really liked this and couldn't wait to try it myself.


Here I've used this butterfly die, some Whisper White and Regal Rose (I know, I know, more Regal Rose!) cardstock to make each butterfly a little raised and "popped"!  Each butterfly has about 5 white dies and the top pink 1.  I probably shouldn't have used as many as 5, but I guess I got a little carried away Big-Shotting!  I chose to use Stampin' Up's 2-Way Glue Pen to adhere each layer, but I did find it was getting a little sticky so I started to just use Snail which worked really well.
I have white embossed the sentiment which is PaperTrey's Signature Greetings Vol. 3 No. 63. Some little pearl bling and I had to stop myself from tizzing away - reminding myself CLEAN and SIMPLE!!!
My card base is Glossy White again - I love the feel of glossy!
