I realise I have a few family birthdays coming up so thought I'd make a start on some of their cards and the first one is one using die cutting with some stamping. The bird stamp is of unknown origins but I think it came as part of a freebie set from a magazine but some years ago. I did emboss the main panel before cutting out the details but of course the embossing has been somewhat flattened in the process but I suppose that is inevitable.
