Tweet Friend Birdhouse Card




Hi crafters!  Here is a great idea to make the Chloe die into a little bit larger of a background.  It looks great with the birdhouses from the Home Tweet Home die set too.









The finished dimensions are 7" x  8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Good Morning Sue

As others have said such a pretty card. It would be great for a new home card. I see you have used the negative shape again; such a useful die.

Enjoy your day my friend

Hello Sue, a gorgeous card today, I love the birdhouse dies, and they look lovely framed like this. Will have to catch up with the video later to see how you extended the frame. Have a great day everyone. Bx

Morning. This collection made me smile the day you launched it and was secretly keeping my fingers crossed lol but it's just so cute and adorable, you can't help but smile, there are a couple of Accessory dies I still need to get from previous launches such as the bbq, but this is on the must get list along with a few more from the new Accessory collection. I know I'll have the cheesiest grin on my face when I watch the video so let's get to it 😉
Sending you hugs and look forward to watching Julia do what she does best - backgrounds to your beautiful stained glass dies xxx

Morning Sue, such a sweet card. I love anything to do with birds, I have a Cockatiel myself and I have beautiful Peacocks and Peahens visit my garden everyday, they belong to a stately home near me but just roam the streets of Corsham where I live. Love Jean xxx

Chris Curry said...

Haven’t got the chloe die yet but do intend to. I love it, so delicate, and this card is gorgeous. Really enjoying Julia’s shows, and she is using the Isobel die that I won. I won’t be buying the one day special but do intend to get the stained glass window dies. Thanks to Julia’s demos and samples shown I have bought the crystal tints and diamond sparkles. LOL. You make the best dies Sue, thank you, have a great day. Xxx

Cute!

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a gorgeous card and thanks for showing us how to extend and then cover up the join in the Chloe die, I really should try this with some of your other dies instead of just being frustrated when they are not the size or shape that I need. I fell in love with the bird houses on launch they are just so sweet - or should I say tweet lol - and they are pretty high up on the list.
