Following on from yesterday's post I have another fresh out of the wrapping Clearly Besotted stamp set & some new Stampin' Up goodies which I combined to make this card:

I used my new purchase of the Stampin' Up Paper Piercing Essentials pack to make the piercing around the circle & was pleasantly suprised how quick & easy it was to do. I die cut the MFT 'hi' die from the silver paper, thereby using the negative of the die for the sentiment. This is a great technique to use for sentiments as you instantly have perfect alignment without having to individually glue & place every letter!
Card inspiration

Supplies used
Stamps & die - Clearly Besotted 'Butterfly Wishes' & 'Butterfly Wishes Additions'
Cardstock - Stampin' Up & grey/silver card from craft stash
Ink pads - Stampin' Up & Memento 'London Fog'
Other dies - Spellbinders circle; MFT 'Hello'; SU Edgelits Large Scallops
Other - Stampin' Up Paper Piercing Essentials pack

Thanks for popping by & take care x
