This is a birthday card and matching bag made for my friend Nina. Continuing on with using dies and stamps I have never used this die set is one I fell in love with and rushed to use but when I tried to cut it, I would rip it every time I would remove it from the die. I finally found the secret to a good cut (and removal) is to use wax paper between the die and the paper EVERYTIME! I have found that it is the only thing that works with the new intricate Spellbinder dies.

A Beautiful and sunshiny bright card, Peggy!! I love the bright yellow with the delicate white accents, a real piece of sunshine for the recipient! Yes, I too have almost stopped using the delicate dies, but now I have the waxed paper right there with the CB, and what a difference it makes! Your friend Nina will love this gorgeous set!

Stunningly beautiful creation, Peggy! That's one gorgeous die set. Ever since I read the tip about waxed paper I've used it, and bless whoever it was that first discovered it! Love the beautiful yellow ribbon, too. Thanks for sharing.

Peggy this is gorgeous! I love yellow because its so cheery. Those dies are beautiful. I too am trying to ink stamps I have never used or to use ones that have not been inked for a long time. I also have a lot of dies the same way. Your friend will love this.

Yellow and white.....so cheery! I love your die cut circle. Wax paper is good and parchment paper also works. When I use parchment paper, I can use the parchment die cut on a card afterwards, which is hard to do with wax paper.

Peggy, I know I'm a little late with a comment, but honestly, I just had to write today and tell you what a beautiful card this is. Your lovely yellow layered card just warms my spirits on this cold Tuesday (hopefully the last day we'll see Ol' man winter). That ribbon is gorgeous and so is the rest of this great card. I think I'm going to have send you my birthday date and any other significant date in my life so you'll send me a card (wink)! Hugs, Susie ~
