Happy Birthday Card

Happy Sunday everyone!

Today I am back with a colorful birthday card and a very popular technique these days with die cuts.

The card looks clean and simple but you have to take your time to put together all the pieces. However I found a trick that I share at the end of the video that makes the process super fast!

Here is a close-up

    I don’t have but a few dies, and certainly nothing as intricate as these. What a great tip for adhering the pieces. So easy once you see it. Hhhmmmm…why didn’t I think of that? The Wink of Stella pen certainly adds a nice element, too.

    Your card is absolutely wonderful with that gorgeous butterfly! The tip at the very end for inlaying the pieces by laying the die over the card and pushing the pieces out is genius and one that I will use! Thanks!

    Oh Vicky I’m so in love with your card. You totally had me mesmerized thru you whole video as I saw you create your butterfly just totally captivated. I love butterflies anyway and to see you do what you did and how you did it blew me away. I so am going to have to get this die. You know by now how much I love what you do and love your videos and girl from day 1 and always get excited when I see you’ve posted a video. I not only watch it once but twice and maybe more because always on You Tube then always on your blog and then revisit more time than you know but just comment once. Girl you so ROCK!!!!!

    I love your card. Makes me feel like spring is just around the corner. I love the tips you give. I used to own a Stamp and Scrapbook store but after I closed it I also stopped doing those things. I have recently gotten re-found interest. I am interested in setting up a blog. Any suggestions for a good site to use?
