Cheery Little Birthday Card

A Cherry Little Birthday Card

Who doesn’t love receiving a Cheery Little Birthday Card?

I know I do.

This week the Xyron Design Team is all about Lawn Fawn…

and I had a blast.  I loved using their dies to make this fun card.

  • When working with small dies, I like to run the paper through my Xyron 3″ Sticker Maker*.
  • Rub and peel the top cover off the paper.

  • Run the paper and die through your die cutter for the perfect little sticker.
  • Just the perfect amount of adhesive and so easy to use.

  • Look how cute this terra cotta pot turned out.
  • Ink the edges of the paper pieces with Vintage Photo Ink* for a realistic looking pot.

The card was so easy to put together using the Xyron Sticker Maker* for all my little pieces.

A really fun card to make.

A special thank you to Lawn Fawn for sending the dies and paper used on this project.
