Happy Monday and happy Bank Holiday Monday to my fellow peeps who have it. I know I'm extremely thankful for the extra day's holiday *wink*!
So on this extra day of freedom, I've been a busy, crafting bee today getting busy with the new release from Top Dog Dies. :)
I used the new Top Dog Dies Alaina Lace Border Die border die in a slightly different way to create this kinda lace strip. So easy. When I paired the lace strip with a couple of new flowers from the Top Dog Dies Pretty Petals Die Set and added some vellum leaves (a die cut that was in my scrap pile from a previous project), the card seemed to evolve into a sympathy one.
- In order to achieve the lace effect, I simply cut a horizontal section out of my die cut border and layered it on to a piece of acetate. The acetate is cut to the size of the front panel on the card and I secured the grey sections of card-stock to it as well before mounting on my card-base with foam pads.
- Glossy Accents was my friend in getting that die-cut, delicate strip to stick to the acetate. Lots of tiny dots does the trick. Just be aware that it spreads as you secure it so a little goes a long way!
- For even more dimension, I selected two die cut flowers and layered them. It doesn't matter if the flowers are different designs, they can still look pretty when layered. :)
Oooh and if you fancy a chance of winning some of these dies this week over on the Top Dog Dies blog and Facebook page so stay tuned! :)
Thank you so much for stopping by today!
