Flying Kites


Hope you are all well today!
I needed a birthday card for a dear friend, and wanted to play a bit
with this new Die-Versions "Flying Kites" Whispers DV-441.

Once again, I cut the die from the background paper, and again from
three designer papers, and cut and pieced them into the die
opening on the blue background.  Rather than to fussy cut all of the bows,
I used a marker and colored them.  After coloring I dotted them with
my Sakura white gel pen.  Easy peasy!

This technique is a bit time consuming, but I find it therapeutic, and think
it makes such a fun statement...AND is flat for mailing!

What do you think?

Hope you enjoyed this card, and will give this technique a try!

The fun sentiment seemed perfect - it's by Unity Stamps.

Be sure to check out the Die-Versions blog each day for inspiration,
and check out the Die-Versions store for new products, sales, and lots of
