I'ts all about dies for today's challenge!
this is my all time favorite sizzix die... so sad that it has been retired for many years now!
I start with white paper then sponged the many shades of yellows, rust and orange.
this is a very fast and easy Birthday card, no stamping required with the embossed birthday background.
the flower center is made by dotting white acrylic paint onto black glossy cardstock with the end of a stylist. this gives you the look of those fantastic large dotted brads without the expense plus-they are flat for easy mailing. Make the whole sheet, then just punch the size you want when needed! easy peasy!
thanks for stopping by~ hope your having a great day!

That is also my favourite die. It's because you created such gorgeous cards with this die that I went looking for it. By the time I joined SCS the die was discontinued and I went in every craft store I passed in search of it. Finally in a small town at least a year after it was no longer I found one.
