Happy Bird-Day (DT) Dies To Die For

Happy Squirrel day everyone!

Well, it's not Squirrel day, it's Saturday, but that's the same thing in my book (grins), especially as it is my day to showcase over on the DIES TO DIE FOR blog

The linked products are all available on the Dies To Die For store
and the extras used are
Tonic layered circle dies
A small star punch and a corner punch that I used to nibble away at
the sentiment panel to give a rustic look
Image painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)

As you can probably see, this is one of those odd shaped cards - I marked out the circle from
mid-line in pencil and then carefully cut with a knife so that half the circle overlaps the
inside of the card, which is where the contrast paper layer is, so I got the circle shape without
adding an extra layer

It's the first time I've tried this and I really like the effect, it just gives a CAS
card that something extra without being cluttered with other stuff but I could really do with
practising my knife skills!

I'm off for a tail colour and trim at lunchtime, and then it will be an afternoon of
clipping back shrubbery in the back garden.  I would be much happier sat
with a paintbrush in my paw

Have a super day, whatever you are up to

Hugs, Squirrel xx

Great technique Squirrel. Cutting is fine from where I sit. Very cute. It is a shame you couldn't take the shrubbery with you while at the hairdressers and get both jobs done in one. Lol!!!
