Border Die Cut

How fortunate that the challenge at DiesRus this week features wings. I purchased this new die when in the Netherlands and created this card a few days ago. The die is from a company called Happy Birds Jeanine’s Art.

Things with Wings 

I die cut this directly into a base card but it slipped during the cutting and made an extra cut at the top. I really didn’t want to throw it away so I used a bit of glitter washi tape to cover up the slit. Added some pencil to the area of the bird that would be darker like the breast and the wings. Also added a tiny amount of smudged gold in those places as well as eyes and beak. I also used some of the fall out pieces on the inside white piece. The sentiment is a vertical greeting thinking of you down the left side of the card. There is still room to write a personal message.

  1. Thanks Lisa. I got lucky finding that store. It was in a small village and had a sale going on so I got a few things at excellent prices. With our $ being so low we were paying a lot for many things. The sale offset the exchange amounts.


  2. Great find during your travels and another great save. I wouldn’t have know you had to fix the image until you mentioned it. Great card.
