Spead Your Wings!

 

Hi friends I have something fun to share with you today. A few weeks ago I received a lovely email from Meagan Morris the Digital Marketing Manager for Top Dog Dies. She invited me to be a guest designer to showcase a few of their products. They are a new company that offers a super selection of Steel Rule and Wafer Thin dies. They are also made right here in the good old USA! So after a bit of correspondence and receiving my dies I have gotten to work and have my first project to share with you today!  I guess you might say I'm spreading my wings again *wink*!


 
This card starts with the Darby Doily and Tags Die Set. Don't you just love this pretty square doily!  After layering this onto a white panel. I added one of the pretty little Leafy Flourishes Die Set at the top by weaving it in front and behind the doily.  This was added to a sage green card base with foam tape. Next I adhered a sweet doily I picked up while on vacation this summer and topped it with a Tin Pin (Darcie). A couple of more Leafy Flourishes and a shimmery bow went on next. Finally I added the tag from the set by simply looping it over one of the vines and adding a bit of foam tape to hold it in place! This darling sentiment is from a Flourishes stamp set gifted to me by my sweet friend Silke!



Here's a close up of the die cuts for you. Look at all of the pretty detail in this doily ~ swoon!! I am in love with the sweet little leaves on the flourishes! I have the Spellbinder's Grand Calibur die cutting machine and these worked beautifully in it. The come out clean and easy!

Thanks so much for visiting today. I'll be back with a pretty Christams card to share using more Top Dog Dies soon!! Pop over to their site to have a look around, you won't be disappointed!! ~Lisa
