Finally I tried a technique where you attach all your cut outs to the cardstock and run the whole thing through the Sizzix machine. I used the lattice embossing folder for this one as well as the butterfly die cutter. It looks as though the design is in the paper.
I gave this to my friend Alex, who loves this shade of blue.
I bought a car on Monday. I've never had a new one before, so I am very excited about picking up my new bundle of joy! I wonder if I should make a 'Congratulations-on-your-new-arrival' card for myself?
