Fabulous Find: Taylored Expressions Party Banner

Happy Birthday to You....Happy Birthday to You... who wouldn't have a smile on their face with a fabulous birthday card made with the Taylored Expressions Party Banner cutting plate???

This cutting plate makes birthday cards so so so easy to make. It is really one roll through your die cutter and placed as an overlay on another piece of paper. You can embellish it by layering the banners or you can go simply and let the beauty of the cutting plate stand alone.

Supplies:  K&C (pattern paper); Close to my Heart (ribbon); Taylored Expression (birthday cutting plate, birthday treat topper); Spellbinders (scalloped circle)

I wanted to add how easy it was to cut with the Taylored Expressions cutting plate...the cuts were crisp and clear ... and are easy to use. Additionally I have found it so easy to pair Taylored Expressions dies together (more on this in an upcoming post.)

Have you added a Taylored Expression product to your stash? You can find many of her products in the store.

As an A Side with Die-Versions Edges

As my title suggests...as an A SIDE...aren't these just the cutest cards ever??? I am in love with the Die-Versions Edges dies. The dies allow you to die cut on an edge. How often have you wanted to add a die cut word or phrase on the edge of a project but were not sure how to do it...well, these dies do it all. They are simple to use, are gorgeous in design and cut beautifully.

Check out the cards below created by the lovely Rosie!
