Today I'm showing you two different ways to create with the new Birthday Background die. This die is "Open" on the ends - meaning it does not cut an outline border - so you can place it on a large piece of paper for scrapbooking. For this tie dye look I blended distress ink on a sheet of white card stock and then cut the die - if you do that backwards your sponge is going to snag on some of the cut pieces. To finish it off I trimmed the edges and gave it a spritz of gold. You can see it better in the close up.
For my second card I die cut the Birthday Background on black cardstock and then mounted it on some sticky paper -(I just ran my adhesive runner over some card stock several times). Next I cut out portions of the die in different color card stock and inserted the letters into the sticky openings.
Two very different looks from the same die right? So I bet you want to know what the prize is for this post! YEP! It's the Birthday Background!
Leave me a comment for your chance to win! Good Luck!
