Altered Dies #3

Hi Everyone! Can you believe that Valentine's Day is right around the corner? I want to show you a Valentine I made with altered dies. I will be showing you how I made these sweet love birds using heart dies and a round punch!

I started with these 2 Nellie Snellen heart dies and used patterned and plain pink card stocks to cut them from.

I cute the hearts in half to make the body and wings of the birds.

I layered them like this and added a punched circle from patterned card stock for the heads. I also cut 2 scallops off one of the hearts for the beaks.

Next I used a my new Wreath die by Spellbinders and cut it apart to make branches.

I stamped the word "love" on a Spellbinders Fancy Labels die and pop dotted it to the card and added a heart charm.

I hope you enjoyed seeing how you can use your dies in different ways to make something totally new. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!
