Secret Butterfly Garden Vignette Box + Simon’s DieCember Release Hop!

I am sharing a magical mixed media project I created with the new DieCember release from Simon Says Stamp! One thing I would love for you to keep in mind as you watch how I create this project is that you can use all of the techniques I share to make cards! If you aren’t a mixed media creator, I would encourage you to use the ideas I’m showcasing in your next card project. I’m calling this my “secret butterfly garden”!

I’ve created uses many new products from the DieCember 2021 collection, including the Stylized Butterfly, the Etched Evening Blossom, Triangle Burst Medallion, Circle Rings Medallion, and Privet Branch.

In addition, I also used many products from Tim Holtz, including his Divided Box (the vignette), Field Notes Ephemera, Specimen Remnant Rubs, Bubbles, Butterflies Adornments, Typography Findings, Large Hinge Clips, and Grit Paste.

This project is a bit involved, so I think the best way to learn how I did it was to explain it is to watch the video! I’ll leave you with a variety of close-up photos showing the details of the vignette!
