Get Well Soon!

Switching gears again today to show you a card I created with Sizzix dies that I got when I first started crafting. They are over 20 years old! I just had this stored in the closet, but Stacey told me how I could use these thick die cuts in the Cuttlebug. My friends are so smart. Thanks, Stacey! I just sandwiched the thick die between to B Plates and didn't use the A Plate at all. Worked like a charm.

Brown card base 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Black 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
Car pattern 4" x 5 1/4"
