Top Dog Dies: Signature Emerson Die

IMG_6437




Time for another project for Top Dog Dies! There is a new release this week featuring 5 new Signature dies. Today I used the new Signature Emerson Die along with the previously released Halloween Trio dies to create a fun Halloween card. I used the sketch from retrosketches and modified the die cut slightly to work with the design.  I took about 1/4" inch on the top of the die cut and then the one of the ribs our of the die cut to form the space. That is the creative part of using a shape die, you can modify the shape to suit your needs after you have made your cut. The scary cat was die cut using some black glitter paper and once again I added green Stickles to the eyes.
