My Go To Birthday Die
I don't know if you have "Go To" dies, but I sure do. Birthdays seem to sneak up on me, and sometimes I just don't have much time to create. This die is the PERFECT die for those rush days. I made the base of this card 5 x6. This gave me a bit of extra space for frames and ribbon. I die cut the Happy Birthday background using a black glitter paper and before you ask....it cut like butter.
I placed the die cut piece onto a silver glitter paper that was cut slightly larger than the die cut piece. I added a piece of glitter ribbon and a buckle, I die cut the word Happy using a piece of red glitter scrap, added a red gem and the front of this card was finished. I layered the piece onto a black base that when folded measured 5 x 6. I've made this card many, many times in all colors. It's flat when mailing makes my pocket book happy.
Here's the inside:
The inside practically makes itself! When the letters release from the die, they are perfect to use on the inside. I love the combination of black, red and silver. I think this makes a great man's card and if you are like me....men cards are a difficult make.
I'm leaving tomorrow for Australia. I'm looking forward to loads of Grammy time with my three grandkids. It will be fun having my state side grandson with my down under grandkids. So, my next posts will be coming from Australia and New Zealand.
Until next time....Happy Crafting and Hugs,
