MC Dec/15 - Quill - ECD Happy Birthday - Just For You
Thought I was using one of the newest Elizabeth Craft Designs dies and realized as I was writing my blurb it was the earlier released die. Sheesh. Back to the drawing board...
But I am really happy with the results. I'm using a bunch of scraps and stuff from my bins. Loving the curvy leaf background which was the negative of the leaves done on Color Burst decorated watercolor paper and looked so pretty when I was finished with it I didn't have the heart to throw it away. Also using a bunch of quilled elements from previous sessions. And I had opened one of my ribbon drawers and there was that little piece of webbed ribbon ...
And the "Happy Birthday" is a top and bottom off the edge die cutting technique explained on my website. Yes you could die cut the word and just glue the edges to a couple borders... There is always more than one way to do things...
Anyway, just click on any card image to see all the details and descriptions and lots more views.
I'm using Elizabeth Craft Designs dies "Happy Birthday"; "Curvy Leaves"; "Leafy Branch"; "Hardware 1 - Hinges";
And on the inside I'm using sentiments from Quietfire Design ("Just For You" 4pce set)
