Day 2:
MELANIE (you are here)

My personal project today is this little beauty. This is the "Breezing By" Stamp set by Polkadoodles. She is holding an adorable little nest of birds. This is a perfect stamp set for spring. I have created a shaped card using the Woodland Foliage Frames die set. It is currently on sale for $10 OFF in the LDRS Online Store. I have taken a few extra photos to share the process with you. It is quite simple to recreate.



This first photo shows the two pieces you will be cutting to create the hidden card base and shape.  To cut the green card base you will need to slide the top of the die over the scored edge of your card base. This way it does not show once the full die cut card front is attached. 

Here is a side view of the completed card.

This die set also comes with the layering ovals to to frame your piece as seen above with the navy & polka dot paper/ The die cut leaves are also from the Woodland Foliage Die Set.  The patterned paper is from the Homemade Happiness 6x6 paper stack.

I hope your day is filled with joy and happiness.... Melanie
