Poppystamps & Birch Press Design Blog Hop


Hi everyone, welcome to our blog hop featuring products from Poppystamps and Birch Press Design! You should be arriving from Patty's blog.


For those not familiar with Birch Press Design, it's an online company founded by Memory Box and Poppystamps creator Dave Brethauer. Birch Press sells household and craft items including the amazing stackable craft dies we are featuring today.

I created a simple card that can easily mass produced with the Delfina Layer Set. I used two out of the three layers in the set. adhered them together and added those onto a dark blue background.


I used a snowflake from the Poppystamps Ava Snowflakes set and die cut it from glittery card stock. The sentiment from the Christmas Greetings stamp set was silver heat embossed onto vellum and I finished off with some metallic accents for the snowflake centres.
