top dog monday...

Hello friends!!  Popping in with my first post as a member of the Top Dog Dies design team!  Every Monday through the end of June I will be posting a new project made with fun and fabulous Top Dog Dies!   With Valentine's Day just around the corner I have a card to share that I made with the following Top Dog Dies:  Heart Border die and Heart Mini Album Finishers die set.


I die cut the border from red cardstock and then very carefully removed some of the little hearts to create the pattern for the border.  After I was done I added little strips of tape to the back to keep the remaining hearts from falling out and the border was trimmed to fit my card front.  It took a little bit of time to poke out all the little hearts, but I really like the look it created.  I die cut the cute little intertwined hearts from white and pink cardstock, inset the pink pieces into the white hearts and added tape to the back to keep them from falling out.   I adhered the border to some white cardstock that I partially embossed with a dots embossing folder.   The sentiment (from PTI) was stamped and adhered to the card stock piece.  Finished by added the little hearts and adhered the entire piece to my card front.

Thanks for stopping by and make sure you check out all the fantastic dies that Top Dog Dies has to offer!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white cardstock; Stampin Up! red; Dies:  Top Dog Dies; Stamps:  PTI; Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black; dots embossing folder

How clever to remove only selective parts of the cut! It creates a fabulous effect! Love this Rosemary!

Oh that is so smart how you removed select hearts to make a pattern, Rosi. I love the crisp, clean look of this.
