Butterflies For You

A very simple card for today. A while back, I tried something. I ran my black cardstock through my Xyron machine and then used a Memory Box die to cut it. That piece has been sitting on my table for a long time. I finally used it on Thursday to make this card. It worked really well! You can't see it in the picture, but I scored four lines on the left side. The "for you" is from a Penny Black set. This card is 4 x 6 inches. A friend gave me a pack of cards and envelopes, and this is from that pack. Thanks, Kris!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

I absolutely love that die. It can be done up in so many colors. Very practical piece to have.

I love your idea about the glue on the back. Much easier than a glue pen! Love your black on white design and nope, can't see the scoring but I'm sure in real life it would add lots of texture!

A stunning card Lynette. I really love the way my Xyron machine make it so easy to fasten delicate cuts like this.

Your card is so beautiful! I purchased this die after you posted the very first card you made using the die. I've yet to use it but I will. :) Thanks for sharing all that you do Lynette.

This is so pretty, Lynette! The contrast is wonderful and really shows off the die cut. You're so smart. I tried running my die cut through the Xyron and it was a mess! Never thought to run the cardstock through BEFORE cutting. Sheesh! I bought double sided adhesive sheets for some of the more intricate die cuts, but I'll try this next time. Thanks!

I can see the score lines and love that touch to this gorgeous card, Lynette! This die has been in my Wish Book for too long. I think it needs to move up the line!! Hugs, Darnell
