Use Your Dies in a New Way

A few weeks ago, I was browsing the web and discovered an article called, "Remix Your Tools: Using the Papertrey Ink Banner Builder Die Set" by Melissa Stinson.  Here is a link to the article which was on the Scrapbook Update site.  ScrapbookUpdate.com is a fantastic site run by Nancy Nally who is a gifted writer and awesome scrapbooker.  Check out her site if you get a chance.

Now for today's project:

Today's is Mr. Moore's 55th birthday, so a card was in order.  I remembered the article I'd read about using dies in a new way - so I thought I would give it a try.  And I LIKE IT !

The paper is from the Life of the Party collection by Basic Grey.  It didn't take long to die cut the number of banners I needed.  I just lined them up and called it wonderful.  Here is a link to the banner set - you probably need one.

The rosette is from the same paper collection.  I used the Tim Holtz Paper Rosette Die.  Yup - I like that die.  For a while everything I made had a rosette on it! 

So happy birthday, Mr. Moore.  Love you loads.
