Top Dog Dies: 25



Hello!

I'm excited to announce that I'm a guest designer for 



Such a treat for me to work with their awesome products!

Top Dog Dies is a new online store that offers their own brand of wafer-thin and steel-rule dies, along with dies from brands you already know and trust, including My Favorite Things, Sizzix, Savvy Stamps and Cheery Lynn Designs. Top Dog Dies is also the leading U.S. retailer for Tattered Lace, a new line of intricate dies designed by U.K. designer Stephanie Weightman.

Today, I'm going to show you what I did with the





Here's the beauty of this particular die, it

creases & cuts

It's true!

This is such an awesome feature!

 Check out what I did with it:


I have tons of double sided paper...TONS.

This project uses Crate Paper.  For those of you that have been following me for awhile know that I'm a huge fan of using non-traditional colors for occasions.  

So the A2 card die cut/scored the exterior of my project.  

The exterior is 'held shut' with a belly band that I made using the same paper but just the contrasting print.  See that '25' veneer?  I've had it for ages and it's perfect for my project, eh?

I measured and cut the interior card, which currently is blank.  I didn't want you all to see my messy handwriting :)



Super Snazzy die, eh?

This is super cute, Amy. I like the non-traditional colors for holidays too; both you and Lauren Bergold taught me to appreciate them...no more just red & green or orange & black (Halloween) for me!

Isn't it fun when a little embellie is just waiting for the perfect project? That little wood veneer was meant for this cute card.

Look at all the doors opening for you, with yet another DT opportunity coming a-knocking. Top Dog dies (can I say when I first saw your title, I thought something not good happened *palm slap on forehead*!) made a wise choice to invite you - one of the best of the best - to join them in their new launch. Your card here, with the super cool fold, the papers, the sweet veneer 25: AWESOME! Going to check out the new dog on the block...
