Birthday Card on Create & Craft

Just for the fun of it, I decided to write in to Create & Craft USA. And you can imagine my excitement when Nigel May read my email on the air and showed a card that I created. 

In case you are not familiar with it, Create & Craft USA is the U.S. version of the popular UK station. It is a new 24 hour crafting channel in the United States. The hosts are great and the crafting experts are fantastic. They have demos of the product and actually show the process from start to finish. You can also get lots of inspiration by viewing the samples that are made. 





This card was made using dies from Tonic Studios and Sue Wilson of Creative Expressions.

I also used the Envelope Punch Board to create a coordinating envelope.

Slim Mariposa Birthday Card

I absolutely adore the new die set that I purchased called Mariposa. There are three different packs of dies that can be used alone or combined with one another to produce endless styles and designs.

This is the first card that I created to see how the dies would cut. I used my Cuttlebug and this particular set cut beautifully. However, some of the dies in the set are quite large. In fact, they are so large that it would be better to use this with the Grand Calibur by Spellbinders or one of the Big Shots by Sizzix. 

I am calling this my slim card. It measures 6 x 3 inches.
