Greeting Poppy Peeps! I have a fun card to show you today, using Poppy's Swirly Loop.


Birthdays seem to sneak up on me, and I love having a stash ready just in case. This fun little die is a handy swirl that could be a sun, a wreath or just a contemporary image as I've used it.


One of my favorite background techniques is to create a stencil from vellum, with my die, and sponge ink it onto my main surface. It gives a subtle 'just enough' texture.


The word sentiment was cut twice from glitter paper.


Hope this gave you incentive to increase the uses for your dies, and of course to increase on hand birthday cards!

Hope your week is super crafty!
