Dies R Us Challenge #177 ~ Oriental Birthday

    Hello everyone, and welcome to our latest challenge at Dies R Us.

Challenge #177 ~ Anything Goes! 

(As long as you use a die sold at the Dies R Us store) 

I've been collecting a few Asian themed dies over time, and now found that I had just the right ones to put this birthday card together.

It was really easy to do.  I cut out all my bits and pieces in just two passes on my die cutting machine.  I have a Gemini so I always place a number of the dies I'm going to be using,  between the plates and cut them all at the same time.  Then it was just a matter of assembling them in the way that I liked.  Lastly it was time to do the inside, which was made using a few leftovers from the front of the card. The two little corner ornaments are the cut outs from the tassel die 😀 Below is the list of all the dies I used.  I have linked each to the Dies R Us store, for your convenience.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope I was able to inspire you to create a project, and  play along with us at the Dies R Us Challenges for your chance to win a gift certificate to the Dies R Us Store.  A new challenge begins on the 1st and 15th of each month. Visit our challenge blog, where my team mates showcase their creations to give you a little more inspiration.  Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Pinterest too.  

And don't forget to visit our sister store, Didi Crafts.  It has warehouses in the US and Canada. This means that our Canadian friends no longer have to worry about huge taxes or expensive shipping fees.  It has some products that are the same as Dies R Us, but in addition, it carries international dies,  and other crafty supplies for a variety of crafts.  Go take a peek and be pleasantly surprised!

Till next time,
crafty hugs!
