Happy Birthday Card & Tag

Each month at Top Dog Dies, there are gorgeous new dies released.  They are such high-quality dies that cut through paper, wool felt, and almost anything just BEAUTIFULLY!  I enjoy working with these die-cuts SO much, and I always enjoy sharing the new dies with you all.  One of the new dies this month is the gorgeous Mosaic A-2 Mat Die.  It is absolutely lovely to use as an overlay for your card, and then place your embellishments on top of it.  If you visit the Top Dog Dies Blog or Gallery, you will see many lovely examples of how to use this die, as well as ALL our amazing dies.  Our talented Design Team is always coming up with great ideas to inspire you and help you learn new and exciting ways to bring the gorgeous Top Dog Dies to life.
In addition to the Top Dogs Mosaic A-2 Mat Die, I also used a kraft card base, a die-cut flower cut from luscious wool felt from Prairie Point Junction/Wool Felt Central, a K & Co. brad is in the center of the flower, and a Happy Birthday sentiment from Verve is stamped on kraft paper.  This lovely die really makes a quick and easy card with a beautiful background.
As you can see, I also made a matching tag using the same supplies.  This sweet die-cit can be cut down to fit any size project.  I wanted to share it in a challenge, so I was able to easily whip up a matching tag for that purpose.  You will love the amazing dies found at Top Dog Dies, as well as all the inspiration from the lovely and talented members of our Design Team.  I hope you'll stop by to check it all out.  Also, I want to let you all know about an AWESOME Blog Hop staring this Monday, March 10, between Echo Park Papers and Top Dog Dies.  This is a HUGE event, and there will be LOTS of amazing prizes offered from both companies.  You won't want to miss the excitement.  You can stop by my blog, or Top Dog Dies to get started on Monday morning.
Thanks for visiting my blog, and have a blessed week!
