Happy Birthday

  I wanted to share  a card I made after watching this  Partial Die-Cutting on a Zig Zag Card video tutorial by Jennifer McGuire. This looked like such a great idea, so I had to give it a try!

And this is my card:

I hope you can see in this picture how I partially die cut the balloons on the fold.
 Pretty cool, huh??

I just added Baker's twine and sequins to make a colorful Birthday card!
I will definitely be trying this technique with more dies! You need to try it!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Stamps: standup4sentiments (Stamps of Life)
Dies: Birthday Style (Paper Trey Ink)
