Happy Retirement

Have you see the latest Special Edition of  Die-cutting essentials - I was commissioned to create four cards using the beautiful free gifts that are included with the magazine.


I was asked to create cards that were easy to make quite quickly, I managed to achieve this by using mainly squares and straight lines.


For this card I used the beautiful free die, some of the stamps and one of the solid papers that are included with the magazine.  I stamped the flowers and fussy cut them, the leaves have been snipped from the die cut and the sentiment is also part of the stamp set.  To make this card even quicker to create you could use paper flowers instead of stamping and fussy cutting.


Thank you for calling this morning, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.

It's absolutely gorgeous and doesn't look as if it was quick to make at all! I've not seen the latest issue yet, must look out for it. That flower panel die looks very useful
