Birthday Circle

Hello there crafters and welcome back to the blog launch!  The next circle saying is the Birthday Circle die.  I decided to keep it very simple for this sample so you can see it doesn't have to have too much in the way of other things (flowers, etc.) but can still be lovely.  While I probably wouldn't call this one inspirational, it is still highly usable as we always need that last minute birthday card, don't we?  Okay, maybe it's just me that always forgets! LOL  I think this one would love to call your craft room it's home!  Don't forget to leave your comment on this post.  I will be back with today's third post at 3pm today.  Looking forward to seeing you here then!  All for now. Sue x

For sure! Makes a lovely last minute card and looks good. I love so many of the backgrounds techniques you've shown over the years so have a fair bit of background paper just not finished cards. Am really trying to get a bit ahead this year.

A lovely intricate design that turns a very simple quick and easy card into a very pretty elegant design and yes I need to make quick cards on occasions

June Smith said...

Afternoon Sue and all Wilsonettes, I totally agree with you about the last minute cards, and this sample is perfect, the back ground and base card can be produced a few times and then when a birthday is needed just add the die cut, walla .....

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Lovely die. I like the way you could snip out the word Birthday and use the circle for other special occasions too. Very versatile.

Hi Sue. Another really useful sentiment and, as you have shown, it is simple enough to be able to really go to town on your backgrounds.

Hi Sue,
I'm not surprised that you occasionally forget a birthday as you have such a lot going on in your life. But, it'd always a relief to be able to make a quick card which looks classy.
Great for batch making for those crafters who sell or make cards for charity. Hugs xxx Pauline from Teesside

Love it!!

Steph Cotterill said...

Hi again Sue. Now this beauty WILL work for my 'market' cards. I have the smaller Circle die with the cup cake and I need to make a few more but smaller size rather than my usual 8x8 I'm thinking CAS will be on trend this year, less seems best for some reason so I need to rein myself in a little and this beautiful die would help I'm sure xxx

Tres said...

Hi Sue. WOW !!! Absolutely fab !!! The card as always is beautiful. I love the die set so much that I have ordered it online !!! So please don't put me in the draw for this one. I knew as soon as I saw it I could not be without it in my crafty stash !!! It is an essential die set for me. As always you have used that GORGEOUS curly, swirly font that I really love from you Sue. Please, please, please could you make that GORGEOUS curly, swirly font in two word dies either mini expressions or new circle dies saying " Happy Mothers Day" and "Happy Fathers Day". I absolutely LOVE these and I really hope you will be making some more. Thank you Sue. Lots of love from Tres x x x
