When making die-cuts, you end up with “negative space” that often gets tossed in the trash. But, today’s card is a result of using that “trash” from yesterday’s cards. Yes, cards, plural, because I made two cards from one die-cut (twofer), and now this is the third (threefer). The fun never ends!
The swooping leaves were cut from Thick Basic White Cardstock (3″ X 5 1/4″), using a die from the Artistic Set. You can see the complete set in my Product List below.

Because the leaves fit perfectly on one side of the card front, I decided to chop off 1 1/8″ on the right side, turning it into a fancy fold. After gluing the “cut out” leaves to the card front, I embossed it with the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder.
Next, I stamped “Happy Birthday in Misty Moonlight Ink on Basic White Cardstock, and used an Ornate Layers Die for cutting. This vertical sentiment is from the Celebrate With Flowers Stamp Set, and the reason I purchased it, but I’m loving the other images. You should check it out in my Product List.
Beauty Of The Earth Designer Paper was used on the inside, 4″ X 5 1/4″, and Basic White Cardstock, 3″ X 5 1/4″. Then, I backed “Happy Birthday” with the leafy pattern by using the same die for cutting. The sentiment pieces were glued together, and glued to the back of the card front, along the edge.
To bring out the blue, and have a bit more detail, I added a butterfly. It was cut with a Brilliant Wings Die from Beauty of the Earth Designer Paper.
Very easy fancy fold, huh?
