Parisian Butterfly Sketch Set

Hi everyone! I just got these awesome SU Beautiful Butterflies dies..LOOOVE them! I saw them in the galleries, but then I saw THIS GORGEOUS CARD from my friend Dawn and I just HAD to have them for myself. I went right to SU and ordered them.

The first card is Taylor's TECC62 sketch. The white butterfly and kraft butterfly are each up on separate layers of Dimensionals. The same white/floral butterfly is on the inside of the card, down in the lower left-hand corner, up on Dimensionals as well. The card measures 5.25" Square.

Next up is Weekend Sketch #75 by Mary Jo. The brown polka-dotted butterfly on the left, the white curved mega rectangle, and the brown mat behind it are all up on separate layers of Dimensionals.

Oh, and just in case you're wondering about SU plates with a Cuttlebug like I was, it's totally do-able. You don't *have* to have the Big Shot to use them. In a Cuttlebug, your sandwich is as follows: B plate, Beautiful Butterflies die, second B plate. That's it! You don't need an A plate or any additional cardstock pieces or chipboard. Cuts like a dream!

Here's a picture of all four cards together:


Whew, that was a long post. Thanks for sticking with me and have an awesome day!
