Tatted Border

This is a fairly simple and basic generic design.
There are varous DP over the cream card base.
The tatted lace look cream border is
a die cut from Cheery Lynn Designs.

Easy Card

A very easy card that is just so pretty.
The front of the white card base is covered
with a dark green card stock.
The flowered DP (designer paper)  has been cut
slightly smaller than the dark green card stock.
Along the lower edge up about 3/4 of an inch
I drew a line across the back of the DP.
This line was used as a guide for
the decorative scissors.

When the DP was attached to the card front
I left a  small gap between, allowing the dark green
to show through.

The flower is cut from card stock weight
DP, using a Sizzix Tim Holtz extended cut die.
The edge of the flower was distressed with dark
brown ink before folding and the ridges were 
inked after folding.

Lacy Butterfly

This is such a delicate design.
The lacy background is a die cut
from Cheery Lynn Designs.
Now I am going to tell you right up front
that this die cut is a real pain.
I probably ran it through my Cuttlebug
at least 20 times, BUT the end result
is well worth it.
If this seems like too much work just
consider the time and effort that would
go into cutting it with a scissors or straight edge.

The butterfly is also a Cheery Lynn Designs die cut.
It has been cut from highlighting foil that
has been glued to card stock.
There is also a solid "angel wings" piece
under the lavender butterfly that has
been cut from vellum.

The flowers are from punches purchased
from Punch Bunch.  They have been
shaped and formed using a  large stylus.
