"Bird Call" Embossed Birthday Card


I bought a embossing folder called "Bird Call" a long time ago, but never used it.   I did a search on the internet to find ideas for using it and discovered a wonderful designer and website filled with lots of embossed cards.  My card is based on this card made by Suzie B.  I used the same basic card layout, but I added a tag with the Happy Birthday saying instead of stamping a saying on the top of one of the layers. Supplies: Cuttlebug Bird Call Embossing Folder, Kraft, Black & White Cardstock.
