Butterfly Die-

Punch 309

Thanks

Good morning, Stephanie here working with "left overs".

At one point, I used the Lattice Die on some cardstock, but never used it.  Then I came across a black piece of cardstock that had an oval cut from it's center.  So I thought I'd try to combine these items and see what I could come up with.

I glued the Lattice die cut behind the cardstock creating a fun look to the front of this card.  Then I die cut the Butterfly die, thinking it might look good with the Lattice die cut.  Since it looked a little plain, I used punch #309 on the butterfly wings.  I inked the edges, then matted it on some red cardstock, adding a bling "trail". 

The card did seem a little plain, so I picked up some left over pieces from punch #309, and created some fun corners for the card.  Then I added my sentiment.

So next time you come across left over pieces from your punches, work with them to see what you can create.
