Pretty die cut, easy birthday card...

This post will be short and sweet. I am in the midst of finishing up my house cleaning in preparation for company this weekend, but thought I'd take a break and share a card with you.

I got this no-brand die online in hopes that it would make quick work of a birthday card, and it definitely does! All I did was prepare my card base, then cut the sentiment and apply with spray adhesive. I added some clear Nuvo Drops and a little glitter to my flower centers and rounded my two bottom corners. This all took about 10 minutes and my card front was done!

I used my computer to print out a sentiment. To better define the sentiment panel against the white interior, I ran a coral ink pad along the edge of it. If you look carefully, you can just see the pinkish line around the panel.

My first guest will be arriving in a couple of hours. It should be a fun weekend, and it looks like the weather is going to cooperate--sunny and in the 30s, which is warm for MN this time of year.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, filled with rest, relaxation and fun! Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Great stand alone die. Love the quick and "easy" cards. I got my "first" unbranded stamp set and die - so far have not had time to play but anxious to use. Know you have had a fun weekend with friends.
