Introducing Shaped Sayings: Birthday

Hello and welcome to day two of the March Papertrey Ink countdown!  

Today I'm super excited to bring you a look at the rest of what I've designed for this months release... Shaped Sayings: Birthday die.  
This one is a follow up to last months Shaped Sayings: Easter die, but in birthday form.  I did not receive my die in time last month to showcase it then, so I'm excited to bring you a look at this months take. With it being all one piece and frame accents built in there are a lot of techniques to be had.
Here I've simply die cut it from pattern paper and attached it with dimensional adhesive. A bit of gold paper and gold baker's twine takes this simple card up a notch. 

Just A Note: My idea behind these sentiment dies was not only to create a bit of a frame shape, but also to create a way to quickly attached the narrow font to your projects by hiding your adhesive behind the curved details. 

Oh, and I couldn't finish up today without another look at Splits: Celebrate too...
This time I've used the top and bottom portions of the die to accent the "Celebrate!" coordinating sentiment.
I first cut it from a sheet of Watercolor Wonder pattern paper, stamped the ribbon frame in smoky shadow, trimmed off by hand the bottom and top portions and attached them to a kraft card base after stamping the sentiment. 

Well, there's a quick look at Shaped Sayings: Birthday die and the Splits: Celebrate set for you. Just remember... this stamp set and it's coordinating dies will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning March 15th

Now, be sure to visit Papertrey Ink blog for more details on these stamps and dies!

  3. Love the happy birthday cut from pattern paper! Both wonderful!

  4. So thoughtful of you to design it so that the adhesive is hidden. So often I have a hard time raising something because it is so thin.
    Great cards.
