Dies Two Ways with Birch Press Designs

Hello everyone!

I hope this post finds you well! I've made these two cards using Birch Press Design dies that can be found at Dies R Us to show how different two cards can be using the same dies, just different colors. I love the simplicity of Birch Press dies and Dies R Us has a wonderful selection; please take a look when you have a chance!

 

What I Used to Make Both my Cards:
White Card Base
Birch Press Designs Grandiose Dies, Bundle of 3, #56102

After making both the purple and grey layered piece I just customized each card using the items linked below. In addition to showing how colors can change a card completely, I was also going for one feminine card and one masculine card. Here is the information on each card:

Missing You {grey card}
Simon Says Stamp Floral Garden, #SSS202304 {sentiment}
Tutti Designs Stitched Nested Rectangles, #TUTTI-217 {out of stock, but other options are TUTTI-414 and TUTTI-410}
Distress Ink in Hickory Smoke
Shades of Grey Card


Once the panel was made for this card, I made a frame using the rectangle dies, to go around it. As you can see from the picture, it's very easy to do as long as you have some low tack tape to hold the dies in place. I attached the frame to the panel, the panel to the card base and then adhered the sentiment, which was stamped and trimmed. 

Just for You {purple card}
Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson, Just for You, #CEDME028
Shades of Purple Card


All I needed to make this super easy card was a sentiment, which I cut out of the darkest purple I used in the panel. I attached that to the card and it's ready to send off!

Thank you so much for stopping by to see my cards! Remember, the challenge at Dies R Us is always anything goes using a die that they stock; that leaves you with plenty of options to play! I hope that you are inspired by our creations and join the challenge, all the links you need are on the right hand side of this blog :)

 

Fondly, 

Christi
