NEW Bird Die Blog Hop!


We're having a Blog Hop with Serendipity Stamps new Bird Die!  It is so elegant and can be use for many occasions!  Here is an example of using it on a Christmas card.
Here is a closeup of the bird.

I kept the inside simple and used the Warmest Wishes sentiments stamp.  I think this is my most used Christmas sentiment stamp!
Finished size is 4 3/4 square.

Another way to use this detailed die is on an anniversary or wedding card or gift.
I backed the wings and tail with blue paper that matches the card base.


I used LOTS of shimmer paper on this card.  It was a little too shimmery so I added some navy blue cardstock for contrast.  It can be used for a wedding or an anniversary. 
Finished card is 6 1/8 x 4 1/8. 


Leave comments on each DT members’ blog and on Tuesday, Sept 2nd (Monday is Labor Day) Serendipity Stamps will pick a random name to win $20 off your next order!
