Cut and Tuck Happy Birthday

Here another Birthday card I made for a friend.
I used a die to “cut and tuck” the shape into a circle. I know that Spellbinders makes one now, but the one I used is made by a company that existed at least 10 years ago. We used to cut the shapes from a brass stencil with an X-Acto knife. Now the same company has made dies to speed up the process. You cut it in your die-cutting machine, then tuck in the shapes under one another. And I have a big memory blank – I cannot remember the name of the company…. I will update when I remember.

Note:  Forgot to come back to update…
The dies that I have used are called Geo Dies.  You can see more of them here:  Geo dies (pop-ups)

Here is the card:

Here is a close-up of the “cut and tuck” shape:

The cardstock I used a 2-colour Stardream turquoise cardstock (the cardstock is actually darker on one side than the other – perfect for doing this kind of technique).
The black paisley cardstock is, I think, by the Paper cut (on sale at Bonnidee). The reverse side is silver and I used a band of it under the greeting.
The die for the greeting is a Sizzix die. The greeting is by Hero Arts.
The butterfly came from a sheet of butterflies from Graphic 45 (Tropical Travelogue).
I coved it with Glossy Accents, then Dazzling Diamonds Glitter (Stampin’Up).
Thanks for visiting my blog.
Merci de votre visite.
