Guest Designing for Top Dog Dies!!

Hello blogging friends! I am so excited to be guest designing for Top Dog Dies today!!!! I had so much fun with the Top Dog Onesie Card and Finishers Die Set. The first thing I thought of was adding some ruffled lace to the back side of the onesie. I loved dressing my girls up when they were babies with clothes that had ruffled butts :)  It was easy to do with Love My Tapes adhesive lace. This lace is one of my new favorite things to hoard, lol. The onesie card could be used for a baby shower invite, a baby shower card, a thank you card, or as a baby announcement. Here is the card I made ...

There is a die to cut an insert for inside the card that you can use to add a writing space. I love that Top Dog thought of this, because most pattern papers are double sided.

and my favorite back side view...

Now I said this lace had an adhesive back, so how did I keep it from sticking to everything where the lace is peeking out at the leg openings? I applied some baby powder to the sticky side using my EK Success Powder Tool. Now my card even smells like a baby :)

I decided to make a mini album to show you how versatile these dies can be. Just because the onesie die was created for cardmaking, doesn't mean you have to use it just for cards! I cut the onesie at the top where the fold was and mounted the die cut papers onto boxboard (cereal boxes work well for this). These dies have no problem cutting through the thicker boxboard. I did not even have to run it through my Big Shot more than once! The boxboard gave the mini more stability. I used eyelets at the top where my mini will open for added strength. Take a look at my mini created with the Imaginisce My Baby collection ...

Look at how detailed these dies are ...

This cute little guy is my great nephew Harper.
