Free as a Bird – Thanks For Being You

Free as a Bird – Thanks For Being You

I’ve seen lots of projects created using the new Free As A Bird stamp set in the new Annual Catalogue, and I’m itching to create something myself but first I thought I would create a card using the coordinating Patterned Paper – Bird Ballad DSP instead.

This was one paper collection I was struggling to bring myself to cut.  But it’s no use just sitting there, and plus I think it looks so much better when you cut your paper and actually use it on your greeting cards
