Top Note Fun!

This is not my original idea....but a friend gave me a card sample to check out...and it had this folded Top Note Die as the actual *card* that opens. I layered mine on a white cuttlebugged layer that is attached to a white cardstock panel.

I folded a piece of cardstock (4.25 x 8.5) in half, so the fold is on the short side. Then I cut it with the Top Note Die so that the folded line was not cut...thus giving me my very funky *card* shape.

I then cut patterned paper from my scrap bin with the Top Note Die, and added some faux stitching.

The butterfly is a Cuttlebug Embossing/Die Cut set. The ribbon is some retired SU! stuff (and it matches in real life.....really!!) The stamp is from SU!'s Flight of the Butterfly Set.

This is beautiful Michelle! I love what you did with the die. Its always so nice to have ideas for cards that are just a little different than ones you can buy in the store. It makes them even more special. The pearly butterfly is beautiful.
This is so pretty, Michelle! I love the softnees of it!
