Happy Wednesday, friends!

It's Nancy, from The Nickel Nook, back to share a fun new inspiration project,
using fun dies from Dies R Us!

These days a simple kindness can make such a difference in people's lives.
Why not make some pretty cards to send to those you love.
I've chosen to use "Thanks" on my card,
but the lovely die set I used has other fun options.
You could simply say "Hello"!

There are many that deserve a huge "Thanks" in these difficult days!

Here's my card:

I'm afraid it was a dreary and rainy day when I made my card,
so I don't have any process photos to share with you. 

I cut an A2 tent-fold card base from white cardstock.
I added a front panel of 4 x 5 1/4, from decorative paper.
I wrapped it with pretty sheer riboon before adhering it to the card base.
Then I added a pretty ribbon bow.

I die-cut the "Spring Has Sprung" die from white cardstock - twice.
I adhered the first one in place on the card front.
From the second cut, I fussy cut two of the large butterflies.
I then adhered just the body of the fussy cut butterfly, onto the two top base butterflies.
When the glue was dry, I folded up the wings.
I then cut the "Thanks" from the decorative paper,
and adhered it to the center of the base die.
Finally, I added mini clear rhinestones around the doily edge of the die-cut.

In this photo, you can see the dimension on the two butterflies,
and all the pretty sparkle from the rhinestones and ribbon.

I hope I've given you some fun ideas!
I'll be back soon with more!
