Take Your Dies Up a Notch!

Hello friends! 

This card was part of the process when I created this card. This is a good thing when using a stamp and die combo. I had many pieces of dies left and decided to create a heart-shape card.

Have you ever tried this? Just take a look at your stash and pick a shape (circle, oval or heart...) and use it as a invisible guide and arrange it into a shape. Easy!

There is no work cut out for you (pun intended) as the stamps and dies did all the work! Imagine fussy-cut the butterflies? By using a large heart shape as a guide, I managed to use up all the butterflies.

Adding some Nuvo Crystal Drops certainly help filling up the tiny space. They also enhance the overall design.
