Hello everyone! Some weeks ago the lovely folks at Top Dog Dies sent me some fantastic dies to play with and today I'm guesting on their blog, and I also have a card to share here. Besides, I'd like to report that their dies are awesome! Great quality, and even the most detailed ones cut like butter :)
I played with the Heart Border die and the inlaid die cuts technnique to create a colorful background. This technique has been around for a while now but I still find it one of the coolest things you can do with dies!
To create the background, I die cut the Heart Border die from a cardstock strip in white and backed it with scor-tape (any double sided adhesive tape or sheet will do). Next, I die cut the hearts border again in a few bright colors and inserted the hearts one by one inside the white strip. Once I was done, I adhered the colorful strip to the card base, trimmed the excess from the top and bottom edges of the card and added a stamped sentiment from Technique Tuesday.
That's it! Don't forget to check the Top Dog Dies blog for another project that includes a little tutorial! There's also a giveaway you don't want to miss. Check it here. Thank you so much for inviting me, Top Dog Dies!
