Blog Hop with The Twinery and Top Dog Dies

Hello and welcome to my stop on this super fun blog hop with The Twinery and Top Dog Dies!!  If you have come from Monika Wright's Blog, you are in the right spot.  If this is your first stop and would like to join us for inspiring projects and a chance to win some fabulous prizes, hop on back to the Top Dog Dies blog to get started today.

For my project, I got to work with the Pretty Petals and Vintage Alphabet die sets from Top Dog Dies along with some of the beautiful Solid Strawberry and Solid Honeydew bakers twine from The Twinery.

I used the Vintage Alphabet die and ran it through my Cuttlebug machine.  I carefully removed the die from my cardstock piece and then carefully took out the H and I pieces.  I then cut another piece of white cardstock, just smaller than the one I die cut with the letters and added some strong adhesive all over the front of it.  

I then laid some of the Solid Strawberry and Solid Honeydew bakers twine where I knew the H and I would be.  I then carefully placed the whole sheet of die cut letters over the top of it (lining up the H and I over the twine).  Two of the letters fell out (O and B), but I just carefully put them back where they were and the adhesive that I had on the back cardstock piece held it in really well.

I then cut out the Pretty Petal flowers and then distressed them a bit, then layered them on top of the die cut letters in the bottom right corner with rhinestone centers and some looped Solid Honeydew bakers twine from The Twinery.
