Happiest of Birthdays

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

This is such an easy peasy card from the latest release of Spellbinders dies that are exclusive to UK Retailers. I like to use new dies quite simply at first but as you can see this frame has plenty of snipping opportunities.

I've cut the main die from the Draping Vine Frame Die Set out of Black Card. The little birds and the flowers are also from the same die set - I cut those out of Sky Blue and Rich Red Card.

The sentiment is from the Creative Expressions Amazing Sentiments Clear Stamp Set, stamped using Jet Black Archival. I've cut it out using Spellbinders Oval Floral. The fancy frame id cut from Black Card from the same die set.

As I said, easy peasy. I just finished it off with some 3mm White Pearls in the flower centres and pierced around the edges.

I was asked about the cat dies from Saturday's post - yes, there are dog dies too. You can see all the Spellbinders UK Retailer Exclusive dies on the Creative Expressions website here and all the other Spellbinders January Release Dies here.

Thanks for stopping by.
