This year I had a great niece graduating from high school, and I decided to make her a fairly non-traditional card.
My butterfly die is by Marianne Creatables. I really love this die, and I find myself coming back to it again and again. It cuts well and is super easy to remove from the die when I use the dryer sheet method.
If you haven't yet used dryer sheets with your intricate dies, its definitely worth a try! There are lots of videos on YouTube to show you how to do it. Just search for "dryer sheet technique."
My sentiment oval was cut with a Lifestyle Crafts die, and this sentiment was computer-generated.
Another feminine touch on my card was the flat-backed gems that I added to my sentiment and to the butterfly's antennae.
Here, you can see the inlay a little better.
Three more little gems and my card was complete!
It's cold and drizzly here today. We have a predicted high of only 45 degrees Fahrenheit! Brrrrr. I guess it's a good day to spend in the craft room!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
