Just wanted to BUG ya...

Just a quick little card today using Lizzie Anne Designs Cute as a Bug set. The butterfly is actually on the inside of the card. I scalloped the window & then made a frame for the front of the card. I also used a double scalloped edge at the bottom to mirror the scallop above.

Here is a fun little tip for making an easy, peasy frame with your Nestabilities.

Step 1 - Take two Nestabilities shapes and stack one inside the other.

Step 2 - Stack them on the cutting plates. I like to use my Cuttlebug B plate on the bottom and C plate on top so that I can make sure my Nesties don't move.

Step 3 - Remove the inside oval and run it through again if you want to emboss the scalloped edge. Save the oval shape for another project.

Step 4 - Voila ~ A perfect little frame!

Supplies Used: Stamps ~ Lizzie Anne Designs (Cute as a Bug); Cardstock and Ink ~ Palette, burnt orange & light yellow; Ribbon ~ polka-dot burnt orange; Nestabilities; glitter pen ~ atyou Spica clear glitter; scallop edge punch.
