  • The “friends” sentiment was cropped to perfection using the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies and my Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  I stamped first, cropped with the die (using a sticky note to hold it in place on the sentiment) and snipped off one end for a little variety.

  1. As always, I love your nice “clean” style card, Mary. I’m just going to have to get that set. I hesitated but after seeing so many cards made with it, I’ll have to “give in”. I “can and jam” and this would be a good choice to make cards to give with the “goodies”.
    Thanks once again for your inspiration! Glad you had fun on your rewards trip!
