Cheapo Dies - Happy Birthday

Hello All!
Today I'm sharing a  birthday card that is sure to bring a smile,
 using dies from the Cheapo Dies Store.

 For today's creation, I have used TWO dies found
at the Cheapo Dies Store ...

and a couple dies found at the Dies R Us Store

Lawn Fawn - Large Cross Stitched Rectangle Stackables Dies

and Small
Lawn Fawn - Small Cross Stitched Rectangle Stackables Dies

Tutti Designs - Scalloped Stitched Nesting Circles

I've die cut my 'lovely fence' twice from white card stock, colored one of the panels using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers
then glued the two panels together.

For the background, I've used Tim Holtz distress inks then popped up my 'lovely fence' die panel for added dimension.  My frame was also die cut twice and popped up with dimension tape.  After attaching the frame to my card base (which was covered with Mintay by Karola 'Farmlife' designer paper, I then inserted my focus panel.

My sentiment was created by die cutting the letters I needed using the Cheapo Designs newsprint die from black card stock, then gluing them to my frame.

I hope you've enjoyed what I've shared today, and, if you're not familiar with Cheapo Dies, you are missing out!!!

Here's a listing of their store, blog & FB links to help you get familiar:

Thanks to all of you for stopping by today!
Here's wishing you a FABULOUS week ahead!
As always ...
P.S.  The little hearts on the fence posts are the ones that popped out of the two main fence panels.


  1. Cute card. Love all the beautiful dies. [Bunny]````

  2. That's a super cute die! I went to look at it and I'm thinking, hmmm, this would make a good anniversary card. Love how you layered your cross stitch panels and did the sentiment up the sides!

  3. that is a sweet die and you have colored it so terrific!, I like what you used for the sun and love this idea for the sentiment to frame the scene, so cool!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me some love!
