Hi Artzy friends -
First I created a birthday card, using the little dies that are included in the set to inlay them back into the detailed slimline cover die. See the cupcake, candles, hearts and stars?! I also inlaid some of the navy blue pieces back into the retro layer.
Because there is so much going on on this card front I didn't want to cover any of it up with a sentiment. I will include my birthday greeting inside the card. The striped background paper, cut with the stitched rectangle die that comes with the set, is from the All the Buzz
Because of my placement of the "Hi" and the other inlaid elements, some of which I popped up for a little more dimension, this is a horizontally oriented card.
I couldn't stop creating with this new die set and wanted to try a vertically oriented card next.
This card is much simpler (and calmer!), as I chose to layer my retro design white on white. I really like the texture and dimension of this background! The image and sentiment are from the new Crazy 4 Cocoa
stamps and dies, also available now. I also added in some hearts from both the Retro Slimline Background dies
set and the Crazy 4 Cocoa dies.
The sentiment strip is cut with a die from the Curvy Slimline Border
dies set. The cup of cocoa and the sentiment are both popped up - just for fun!
This card could be used for several occasions, including the upcoming Valentine's Day holiday!
I love that this die can be used in either orientation, and has so many design options for inlaid die cutting!
