Happy Bird day THSplatters Card

Made this Birthday card using Paper Smooches (PS) stamp/die and Tim Holtz Splatters stencil. 

I discovered a good way to cut PS dies. Since PS dies are solid and not framelit style (kind you can see into the cut area) I use to not get a good cut using PS dies so now I use a cut out piece of same image as stamped image of cardstock placed over the stamped image cardstock and then place the die on top lining it up with the already cut out image and I get a good cut.

     Supplies List

ink: VersaFine Onyx Black
