Clean and Simple Tutorial with Top Dog Dies



Hello friends! Today I have a very CAS tutorial for you using some of my favorite Top Dog Dies. It includes few die-cuts and you will have a super cute card for Mother's Day!


Let's start die-cutting a piece of white cardstock using Top Dog Dies Flower Mosaic A2 Mat Die.



Die-cut a couple of butterflies using the 2 small butterflies from Top Dog Dies Butterfly Finishers Die Set, one in Pink cardstock and one in Patterned Paper. Die-cut also the twirls



Then, glue them together and lift up the wings to give it a 3D look.



Add them to the background piece. Add a piece of light blue cardstock.


Die-cut a mini tag from Top Dog Dies Mini Tags Die Set. Stamp a sentiment and add them to card with dimensionals. Add a piece of pink twine. Add paper flowers to butterflies.



And this is how your card will look like. I really like how it turned out! The pink and brown really pops from the light blue background.




Hope you like it!
Have a fantastic day!!
