Happy Birthday David

Today is our brother in law - David's birthday (Chris's hubby)
Here's the card that I made for him using one of the NEW Thinlits Card Dies.
(I used the circle one here, but if you call back tomorrow,
you can see another card made using the Label one )
I was able to try this one out because I am a Stampin Up Demonstrator, you will be able to buy them from the 22nd October - it's only next week, so it's not too long to wait!!

General view

The flip card base was die cut using the Thinlets card die.
The colour combo was simply Pacific Point and White - with a smidge of Silver Glimmer paper.
I computer generated David's name and the cut out the banner shape around it 
using one of the Thinlets dies that accompanies the Card Dies.
The Scallop Circle was also die cut with another one, as was the "hi",
there are quite a few to choose from!
The stampsets used were Simply Stars and the sentiment was from Simply Sketched.
The stamped stars were fussy cut, but the little star was from the Merry Minis Punch set.
I can see me using these Card dies quite a lot in future!!
