Cousin Birthday Card

This dragon die is very popular with the boys and men I make cards for. A lot of them are keen rugby supporters and proud Welsh men. So using the dragon and Welsh colours is ideal. 

I have matt and layered a 8x8in card with red and green. I have put embossed card down the centre of the card, embossed using Embossalicious picnic plaid folder. I have used satin ribbon at the edges of the embossing. I have die cut two circle using Tonic dies. one in green and one in white. I have cut the dragon using a Sweet Dixie die and glued that too the circles. I have die cut rectangles using Tonic dies and and added a cousin sentiment (First Edition die)  and 14 (Marianne dies) and attached them to the corners of the card.  I have die cut the Happy Birthday with a Tonic die. I completed the card with stars that I have cut with a punch.
