I took a few moments to create this lovely shaped card yesterday. When I say a few moments....I mean it! The thing that took the most time was tying my bow. I had it tied perfectly....and then I decided I wanted it to go the other way.....stupid mistake! I'm sure you've never done that. I don't know why I ever decide that. Once I untie the perfect bow, I usually have to retie it 20 times to get it to look halfway decent again!
Anyway, I digress.....I made this using the Oval Accents Clear Bigz die in the new catalogue. Basically I took a card base and ran it through the Big Shot....I just didn't put the folded edge all the way to the top of the die - I left it about a centimeter below where the top of the die is. When you do that, it leaves the crease and creates a shaped card!
After that I stamped the Distressed Dots background stamp in Midnight Muse on the card.
Next, I cut a piece of Daffodil Delight DSP with the Apothecary Accents framelit and sponged the edges with Midnight Muse.
I stamped the sentiment from One in a Million on the front and used some scraps to stamp these butterflies and punch them out.
See? It really was that easy (minus my imperfect bow!)
