Have you got dies? Mmm, well yes I may have got a few myself - my husband would say a few too many if he knew what a die was! So one card didn't seem enough for this challenge and I made two.
This one is winging its way in the post to a great nephew even as this post goes live. It uses a negative die of the WOW and a layered up die for the birthday. And of course my favourite and most used set of dies - the double stitched rectangles.
My second card uses exactly the same layout but with a different focal die and a change in the colour of paper. This is my favourite of the two and the one displayed on the HLS blog page.
The bird die was a gift and the sentiment stamp is from HLS. I love how the diamond pattern on the paper looks through the die cut birds.
Stamps: HLS, Mix Mash, Bold birthday (retired)
Inks: SU, night of navy, bermuda bay
Dies: MFT Die-namics, double stitched rectangles, WOW; Lawn Fawn, HB banner; Birds - a gift
Papers: Lawn Fawn, Beachside
