Ivy Trellis Birthday Card

Hi Bloggers

I am finding it hard to blog in December there are so many other things  that need doing there isn't so much time to craft. How are all your plans going? We actually know what we are doing for Christmas now so the shopping can start in earnest.

Today's card was the result of a play with some new dies they are all Sue Wilson dies.


I started with the card blank and I messed about with the dies until I was happy with the design it did take a while and quite a few false starts.


The panel dies are beautiful and I can think of quite a few uses for them. When I get my new  Grand Calibur I  want to try a similar design to this one as a square - you know how much I like squares.


I tried a much fancier die cut Happy Birthday in the centre of the tag and it just didn't work. It is very pretty I have saved it to use on another project.


So there you have it another birthday card for my stash. I keep needing male cards so I ought to make a few more of those. 


It is Thursday evening so I want to wish you a happy weekend. Only one more day at work. I will be at a special service in Winchester Cathedral tomorrow for work it should be good if a little cold.

Happy Crafting 

Hugs Jackie
