Pretty Wings...

It's my day to bring you some Die-Versions goodness!

This card is made with the Die-Versions "Pretty Wings" Die.  This is one of the prettiest butterfly dies that I've ever seen, and was so excited to see it in my last envelope from Die-Versions!

This shot shows the card closed.  This is a 6 x 6 card base.  I've measured in from
each side about 1.5 inches, and cut up to the fold on the card base.  The flaps
on the sides were adhered to the card back, leaving only the center
as a fun little easel!
The small strip in the center is actually the "Crochet Lace" Die (DVW-322).
I've cut it out, and cut it in half, placing each half together, and covering the
seam with a ribbon scrap.  I totally LOVE this border die!

Now, here's a view with the easel up.  Isn't that just the most fun?
The sentiment inside says "Wishing you a blessed & wonderful day".

Next up is a FUN and girlie card!  I've always LOVED shoes - wish my old feet would still
tolerate heels like these!  This die, "Shoe Collection", is so great - the set has every one of these shoes!
Of course, it can be cut apart if you want to use just one shoe, but as it's small, I just left it together,
punching a set of each color.

The sentiment on this one is computer generated.

This 'Diva' release was so much fun!  I can't wait to create with these dies again!
Hope you'll head over to the Die-Versions store and see what's new!

Both are beautiful! The first one is such a unique easel fold and the colors are wonderful! Those pretty butterflies and the center look gorgeous against the wonderful DP. How creative with the center die cut too!
