Fluttering By to Say Hello!

Hello and Happy Friday Everyone!
Today I have another creation to share that was created for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog.  

Since I was in need of some Easy, Peasy note cards, I thought
butterflies would lift anyone's spirits during these cold winter months.
I recently purchased a couple new butterfly dies
from our Dies R Us Store so thought I'd see what I could create quickly.

I was thrown a bit when I die cut these butterflies and saw that
the stitching remained on the portion that would typically be thrown away!
Well, you can't have that!  Right!
So I attached a panel of matching design paper behind my die cut and reinserted
the butterflies with just a dab of white glue in the middle of the bodies.
This left the wings able to be lifted up a bit.

Here are the dies I've used today:

Something I realized (after the fact) and wanted to share with you is this!

These awesome Technique Tuesday 'Say It' dies are 2 part ... the solid background die and the word die.  
I could have saved myself even more time today if I had simply die cut the word from the background panel versus die cutting a separate word and gluing it to the background.  DUH!!

Please be sure to take a minute and check out all the fabulous dies available
at the Dies R Us Store!  AND, don't forget we have a Dies R Us Challenge Blog too!
A fun new challenge is offered on the 1st and 15th of each month with a PRIZE VOUCHER
