  • The Free bird die set pack contains of two dies, one gives us the solid die-cut(only the silhouette) of the bird, whereas the other die gives us an intricate die-cut. Both can either be clubbed together or used individually as per our choice. For making this card and gift box set, I used both of them. The solid part was die-cut from a golden card stock and the intricate part from a white one.

  • For making the card, I masked and stamped the floral images and water-coloured these using Faber Castell pencils.

  • Then I spattered some blue and golden (inka gold mixed with water) droplets along the floral images to add interest.
  • I mounted the hummingbird die-cut over the card base using a 3D foam tape.
  • Finally, stamped the sentiment.

I had this pillow box lying in my stash since quite a while and I thought it would be nice to give it a make-over and decorate it now using some dies to co-ordinate with this card.

I used a doily die cut from the Hello Doily die set, Loyal cherish die-cut, hummingbird, a few mulberry flowers and a twine to embellish the pillow box.
