Hi Everyone, I wanted to try out the Birch Press Sevilla die set, so decided to make two cards with different colour schemes and greetings.
The first is a birthday card that I made for my daughter, I knew she would like this colour scheme and liked the richness that the gold brought to the card.
The Sevilla die set consists of three full size dies that are cut and layered on top of one another. For this card I used a blue background then cut the layers in dark turquoise, lighter turquoise and the top layer from gold card.
The Celebrate word is die cut from the same gold card and mounted across the top part of the card. As always with the Birch Press dies, the card is very quick and easy to make, giving, I hope you will agree, gorgeous results.
I really wanted to show that these dies would work for any occasion so my made a Christmas card for my second one.
This time I covered the card base with Gina K Fancy Foil in sparkly silver and then die cut only two layers with the Sevilla dies so that more of the silver would show through. A silver peel off greeting mounted on red and green card matches the colour scheme, use 3mm foam pads to adhere it to the card and add some dimension. Another card, that although it is quickly and easily put together, looks like you have spent ages on it.
When you use the Birch Press dies don’t forget to keep all the little pieces that are cut out ready to use as embellishments on other cards. Although these dies are quite expensive, they produce fabulous results in next to no time and you need very little else to complete a card – a sound investment.
Thank you for visiting.
