The Craftiblog and then saw many beautiful examples on Splitcoaststampers.com. What makes me happy about these is that I used my Crafter's Companion Ultimate, my Cuttlebug, and my Cricut for these. I was complaining to my husband that I really hate doing the math involved in measuring all the matting pieces so after our friends went home the other night I used my SCAL program to make a template to cut out all the pieces for these cards except the card base, which is just a 5 1/2" x 12" piece of cardstock. I can now whip one of these up in just a few minutes and don't have to measure a thing! I have chosen not to embellish these yet, except for the butterflies and the rose on the embossed one as I plan to keep a bunch on hand for when I need a card in a hurry. I have some sentiments for all kinds of occasions on my computer that I can just print out from Word and then mat and adhere to the cards quite quickly. Oh yes, as you can see on the butterflies, I fell in love with Stickles!
