I have a couple of cards to share with you today. I once read on a crafty girl's blog that she doesn't buy anything unless she can think of three different ways to use it.
So in case you have a little holiday money burning a hole in your crafty little pocket, I wanted to show you three different ways to use this cute little die set from Top Dog Dies:
When I looked at that bottle on the left, I immediately saw a flower petal (I know. I'm crazy. I see things, and don't even get me started on the voices I hear). Anyway, do you see it? Just trim off the base and continue the curve on the top and you've got a perfect little petal shape.
And then it was all very serendipitous when they fit perfectly around the little hexie punch from Fiskars. I created two layers of petals just to be able to use all the pretty colored petals I had cut (did you catch that they are in rainbow order?)
The hello is cut on my Silhouette Cameo and the friend tag is cut from the Cherish Doilies & Tags set. I mounted the whole piece onto an embossed Circle Mini Album die.
Next up, I used the bottle on the right as a vase and filled it with a cut from the Wildflower Die.
I also snuck in a little doily from the Cherish set.
A couple of Wednesdays ago, I shared this nail polish gift:
Yup, you guessed it! That nail polish bottle was made with the Bottles #2 die, too.
Just cut off the top, add a strip, and a little tip for the brush. These would also make the perfect embellishment for a card that contains a gift certificate for a mani or pedi.
Here are the die sets I used in these projects (click on the photo to go to the Top Dog Dies shop):
Next week I'll be back with a collection of mini embellished doilies.
Thanks so much for stopping in for a visit!
