(dies used: Eyelet Envelope, Nesting Butterfly and 4x4 Ring Master Font)

Due to a hiccup in the shipment of May Club Die by Lifestyle Crafts, I was able to pull some strings and get this bonus die for our Club Members.  Your kit in June will have 2 dies, May and June exclusive club dies. Please enjoy this die and thank you for your patience and understanding.

I used Doodlebug Designs Boys Only line and the cut-outs sheet on this layout, but you definitely could use die cuts like Nesting Scallop Circles and Nesting Frames to complete the same look:

It's Grad time and I know a few students graduating this year and was in need of a gift idea.  The new Pocket Die inspired me again, making for a perfect gift card holder. This time I used the decorative punch out for the front flap:

I made a couple of Birthday Invites for my Daughter's Party ~ the new Pocket die worked great!!
The nice thing about this die is you can cut it with the decorative design on the front flap or leave it solid like I did on the invite.
