# Butterflies # Embellishments #2

Reflection dies tutorial - wedding card - Kianel

Hello Cheery Lynn designs fans!
Kianel here with you today hoping that you've had a great time this past week. Today i wanted to share something special with you: i had an "epiphany" two nights ago and became obsessed with trying to mix the reflection dies shapes together to create new ones and wow, the result is super cool and i had so much fun.
But first, here is the card i made this week on a wedding theme:

The card is about 14x18cm. It has two small paper pieces that come above the card and can be tied together. Those paper pieces are made using Mini pearl rectangle mega doily size 1 combined with Mini pearl circle mega doily size one.
I decorated with Two of hearts smallest die.

The base is made using Mini pearl rectangle mega doily combined with Mini pearl circle mega doily. I used the dies as a template (inside space) to cut my patterned paper and added small lace in between the shapes.

 Olive branches + cherry blossoms (biggest size, in music sheet paper)

 The different frames are made with Mini pearl rectangle mega doily fitted size for my needs.
Mini fanciful flourish + Build a flower embellishments set # 2 (small flowers inked and painted and decorated with half pearls).
 Mini dimensional butterflies inked and painted with Creative Inspirations shimmer paints and decorated with half pearls.

Stamps are Magnolia, papers are Pion designs, all embellies are from a french online store. Colouring with distress inks and Creative Inspirations shimmer paints.

So here is how it goes:
 I selected size 5 of the Mini pearl circle mega doily and combined it with same size of Mini pearl rectangle mega doily. I taped them together on my paper so that nothing moves while in the machine but you can do that in 2 different steps as you usually do with only one shape.
So here is circle + rectangle

Here is what you get: pretty cool shape isn't it? And it fits perfectly for the window stackers as they are exactly the same shape!!! Well, you can also mix the scalloped Reflection dies together  so the possibilities are kind of endless, lol!

You can try this and mix all the shapes together as you want: so much fun!!!
Here are some other examples with the mini pearl mega doilies:
1: oval + coved rectangle
2: square + oval
3: circle + oval : soooo perfect for Easter!!!!
4: circle + french flair
5: square + coved rectangle
6:  Rectangle + french flair
 So have fun with your reflection dies and you'll see that they are a MUST as
the possibilities are nearly endless!
And why not give it a try with our "frame it" weekly challenge for a chance
to win a 20$ shopping spree!
See you next week, love from France, Kianel.
