Taylored Expressions Band It Die

Hello everyone!! Today, for my Taylored Expressions February Die focus post, I am featuring the Band It die. This is the first time I have used this die and believe me...I will be using it a lot in the future!!! It's so can be used for any sentiment or as part of the design...I love it!!!! I have several birthdays coming up so I made two birthday cards, today!!

My first card features papers from Simple Stories I (heart) Summer 6x6 paper pad. Sewing was done around the background barn wood paper and then the edges were distressed. The banners were all cut by hand and enamel shaped were added to the last banner. 

The  Band It die set consisted of three different dies: the band, the scalloped center, and an oval top. The band was cut out of Riding Hood Red card stock and the two top layers were cut from the I (heart) paper scraps.  The Happy Birthday stamp is from the Taylored Expressions Say What? set and the It's Your Day stamp is from Taylored Expressions From Me To You set

My second card features stamps from the Taylored Expressions Ride the Wave set, paper from Simple Stories I (heart) Summer and enamel dots. 

The Band It die was used again with Not Quite Navy and Baja Breeze card stock and the Happy Birthday sentiment from the TE Say What? set

Thanks for visiting today...I hope you have a super special day!!!!!
