Helloby Karen Oliver
Dies are so versatile and can be used to create subtle backgrounds by using the embossing method suitable for your die cutting machine.
On this card I used the Peeking Cats die from the January Pet Love release. I drew very light grids in pencil on my white card stock so I could line the dies up as perfectly as possible. Using my Cuttlebug I embossed them each 3 times to form my background.
I used the Chevron Edger #1 to cut the corner from the card to add a little interest and placed a piece of coloured paper underneath. Finishing off with the hello die cut in the same coloured paper. The hello is also cut out in foam so it sits up off the background.
I love this effect and its a wonderful way to stretch your dies.
