The old adage goes "Measure twice, cut once". Weeellllll, it is a great bit of advice that I did not use this time. I was planning my card for our Little Debbie's monthly swap, which was to use something punched, Big Shot-ed or cut out. I wanted to use the Lap of Luxury DSP in the Big Shot to cut out the Top Note. As I figured it, I had just enough of the "Life is Beautiful" sheets left to make the number of cards I needed. I measured once and cut ---- wrong. But all was not lost. Here is the card I had planned and made the majority (that would be all but one) of:

And here is the odd card out that I did to correct my mistake. Same design, just flipped.

I like the looks of both of them. I also ran my Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die through the Big Shot to get the butterflies. I finished it off with a few of the pearls. To get the ribbon strip, I punched two strips with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch and mounted them side by side, running the ribbon on top to cover the seam. You cannot tell by my lousy pictures, but the colors are Pretty in Pink, Basic Gray, Concord Crush and Very Vanilla.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!!!

  1. I love both of them, Michelle! You have single handedly made me rethink that dotted scallop ribbon border. I didn't want it until recently, seeing your awesome creations using it! I love the paper, the butterfly, and the accessories you used on this card. It is simple and elegant - perfect!
