I am SO Lucky!

Why? Well, because I figured out how to make a Valentine's Day card for a man. At least, I think I did. You see, butterflies are bugs and boys like bugs, so I figure it works. Just say'n.

I am so Lucky!


This card was initially inspired by the Cutting & Trimming Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. My Purple Cows trimmer has a guillotine side that I use most often, but it also has a rotary cutter side that I use on occasion. What I often forget, is that it has some pretty fun extra blades for that rotary side and this challenge reminded me to pop one of those suckers in! I LOVE the wavy cut details on this card!

I am so Lucky (detail)


The other cutting tool that got some action for this one is my tried and true trusty pair of Cutterbee scissors! I LOVE those things! I use them to do my detail cutting, like cutting this butterfly from the patterned paper it was stamped on.

I am so lucky (2)>


And, of course, my straight cutter did a bit of work for this one, too. It's funny how something so subtle can add SO MUCH to a card! I can't tell you how much I LOVE those wavy cuts! I'll be using that blade more often! Oh...and the patterned paper and stickers are Echo Park (*LOVE!*) and the butterfly is one of my favorites from Skipping Stones Design!

As for today...well, it's Monday. Let's make it a good one! Have a Happy Day and don't forget to smile!

Jingle out!
