Die Cuttin’ Divas – Birthdays

We’re celebrating birthdays this week at Die Cuttin’ Divas!  I don’t know about you, but I’m always in need of birthday cards and wrappings.  Our sponsor this week is Spellbinders and they sent me a really nice die set to use on my project.  It’s called the Shapeabilities Petite Double Bow and Flowers Etched Dies Elegant 3D Vignettes by Becca Feeken.  It comes with two dies that, together, make a double bow, and there’s a third die that makes a flower.

I started with the bow.  I admit I was a little baffled at first (I thought it was a flower with leaves!) but I found the die on their web site and there were instructions on how to make the bow.   “Die-cut two each of the double bow die and bow tail die. Match up the tabs of the double bow die cut and loop each bow piece to the bottom hole, secure with a brad. Then loop over the protruding tab over to cover to make a center loop, add bow tails and secure all with the same brad. Decorate with the flower accent or leave as it.”

While I was cutting out the pieces, I noticed my Envelope Punch Board.  I hadn’t used that in ages and thought I’d give it a go.  I followed Pootles Papercraft’s tutorial and made two boxes, decorated with the Spellbinders’ bows!The first one has a little Velcro closure. The second one has a belly band closure.The papers used are from the Echo Park Birthday Wishes paper pad.

As I mentioned above, this die set comes with a flower die, and I decided to try it out.  I used the Cricut Wild Card cartridge for the front panel of this card and a font on my computer (CK Timeless) to make this simple birthday card with the flowers.

Hope you join us at Die Cuttin’ Divas this week and make a birthday project!!
