# Borders # Dimensional Butterfly Bundles

Tutorial

Jodi here again today!  Did you enjoy the projects the ladies created with the newly released dies?!  They did such a lovely job, didn't they?!  AND, the dies are sooo pretty!!

I am going to start with a tutorial for the glass etching I did using the Fall Harvest 2 die. 

I cut the die from a piece of scrap vinyl…which I must say it cut beautifully!! I applied the cut vinyl to transfer tape, then very carefully removed the backing….you have to go slow with all the flourishes!

I centered my diecut on the glass and used a flat tool to make sure I got the vinyl down tight with no air bubbles. You don’t want the etching cream to leak under any areas.

Remove the transfer tape and apply the etching cream (I used Armour Etch). Read the instructions and wait the allotted time letting the etching cream work. Rinse off the cream. Remove the vinyl diecut. Admire your handy work!!

I dressed up my frame by forming a cluster of leaves cut from the Small Dimensional Leaves.

Next I want to share a card. The background was cut using the Dutch Scallop Square Frame, just the perfect size for a card!  The lacy blue trim is two pieces of Carnivale Border over lapped slightly and wound with ribbon.  I added Stacker Flower Leaf #1 and a Mini Exotic Butterfly to dress it up.

Thanks for stopping in today!

  2. I love the glass etching! And I love to do it. But I don't understand what you mean by vinyl and what type of transfer tape you used. Hope you can expound on this.
