It's Friday... YAY! I'm here today to share a Design Team Tip with you for Papertrey Ink. Let's talk word dies this morning. I think we are all big fans of creating with them and most times they are used just to complete your project by adding a sentiment. I'm stretching one word die a little bit further today ...
How about using that one word die to create a whole background for your card base? I've done this in the past a few times and always love the end result. The die I chose is from Word to Live By: Inspire, but Papertrey has such a wide variety of word dies that you could do this with. You can see some of them HERE!
It may be a bit time consuming to attach all of the die-cuts to your card base, but it was easy peasy to create this 'inspire' background. I chose to do white on white and then added lots of color to my butterfly, from the Butterfly Folk Stamp Set and Butterfly Folk Die Collection.
I added dimensional foam behind my butterfly to give my card a little dimension and then layered her with flowers, leaves and the rest of the sentiment, from the Words to Live By: Inspire Mini Stamp Set.
I hope I've inspired you a little and you'll try creating your own die-cut background. I would love to see what you create!
Have a wonderful Friday, friends!
