I had also bought the punch out tool to help remove the teensy punched out pieces but still am not sure exactly how that is supposed to be used. I did find (after a few attempts) that running the die through my Cuttlebug several times and even rotating the die on each pass through helped me get the best cut.
I made two cards both the same with just different background papers. The papers I used were from Crate Paper's Portrait Collection. The sentiment and the butterfly which were both embossed with gold Zing embossing powder were from Bevy of Butterflies by Unity Stamps.
I inked with Pumice Stone Distress Ink (Ranger) and used a little American Craft dotted ribbon.
I love that doily die...look at the detail here:
It really is lovely, isn't it?
and here is a picture that shows the embossing...I know that you know what embossing looks like but I thought it turned out so cute! And sometimes it's just fun to put up more than one picture! :)
Is it hot where you are???? I played tennis today for just an hour and thought I was GONNA DIE! We have had one hot summer so far...and I think it is going to be worse tomorrow! But I'll take the heat over cold any day....
