Fancy That Dies...some cards

Hello Everyone!  I hope you are all having a wonderful creative day.  Today I want to share a little more Fancy That Dies goodness with some very simple three step cards.

 
 
Of course it also helps that I've used up some more of my off cuts!  *grin*  I love putting these extra bits of paper to good use.
 
 
I call these cards "three step" because well...,  there are three steps to creating them!  LOL! 
 
step 1.  choose and fold your off cut piece of cardstock. (being a 8.5in x 11in scrapper... I have a fair amount of 3.5in x 12in scraps in my stash!)
 
step 2.  add three sections/strips/blocks of co-ordinating scrap patterned paper.
 
step 3.  embellish with your dies.  I have used a selection from Fancy That Dies.  Check out the amazing range here!
 
 
You can't create cards any easier than this!  Trust me.  I've tried!  hee hee...


By the way, I love how these dies cut vellum.  It comes out perfectly.  And the little touch of vellum builds up the layers on my flower.  Got to love that!

 
products used: Fancy That Dies - butterfly quartet, sweet blooms, scalloped rolled rose, mixed leaves; cs - stampin' up, kaisercraft; pp - American Crafts Dear Lizzy, Jillibean Soup; other - Girls Paperie cardstock sticker, Greatest View sequins, vellum; tools - corner rounder.

Notice on the middle strip of patterned paper (blue with white polkadot) I have used a die to create extra interest.  It is zippity do da and I love using this die in particular, to add to my layers.
 
Thanks so much for visiting today.  I hope you have fun creating a few cards out of your left over scraps of paper..x
