Swirling Leaves...

Happy Wednesday,

Today I promised I would share a card using the new, to be launched on Friday night, Swirl leaves die that matches with the Bee Balm collection.

For todays card I have matched the leaves with another new set launching on friday the birds and cages.

To kmae the spray I simply cut the dies ( the set has 2 dies in mirror image so that they 'go' each way) once in white and once in silver and shaped them before creating the flourish down the card.

I added in the butterflies, yes these will keep appearing as I love the delicacy of them, and the cages along with the detailed debossed birds that come with the cages.



  1. Mornings John, wow this is by far my favourite card it is gorgeous the colour the die cuts the paper everything, I love the bird cages they are fantastic so looking forward to the shows.
