I tend to need two different kinds of cards; birthday and
thinking of you. The Wreath Builder Dies (p 173)
are my go-to for this occasion. I created the bird with
the Birds and Branches set (p 120) and cut it out with the
Birds and More Dies (p 174). The bird was placed on
a piece of Braided Linen Trim, which is so easy to unbraid
in order to create frayed ends.
I used the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing folder on p 185
to add texture, and then sponged this layer. The sentiment comes
from the Butterfly Gala stamp set on p 79.
