Hi there. I'm back with my second post as a Guest Designer with Top Dog Dies. Please click here to see my first post. Today I am showing two cards using the Ornate Gate Die.
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, Lawn Fawn, Taylored Expressions. 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 British designer Stephanie Weightman.
I thought that this die would be perfect for cards related to a new home. For my first card, I paired this die up with a sentiment from PTI Putting Down Roots and some bird die cuts from Memory Box. The sentiment is stamped onto a Simon Says Stamp Sketchy Banner. I just love it when new stamps and dies work with things I already own, and this Ornate Gate Die does just that.
For my second card, I paired the Ornate Gate Die with another sentiment from PTI Putting Down Roots that I stamped onto a Stitched Sentiment Flag die cut from Lil Inker. The sentiment is embossed in white and stamped onto PTI Melon Berry card stock. I added a few stamped and die cut plants, also from PTI Putting Down Roots to my little front door scene.
Here are the two cards together. I am entering them both at Addicted to Stamps for their CAS challenge.
Thanks for Visiting
