Beautiful 3D Butterfly Card
The Big Shot is such a great tool for any papercrafter. It allows one to make things like these amazing butterflies with Butterflies Thinlits and Bold Butterfly Framelits. Thinlits and Framelits are really the same thing - one frames an image to cut and the other cuts out more intricate things.

I love to make cards that look like I fuss but are easy.
