Altered Dies #16

Hi and welcome to my blog! At the beginning of the summer hubby and I ate outside at a downtown cafe at dusk. There was a nice little breeze and a jazz player nearby playing delightful tunes. Small little lights hung over us as we ate. This card reminds of that wonderful evening! This card is also another altered die card. Sometimes we don't have a die that we want so we can alter some that we have to make them into something else. That is what I did on this card. I wanted an awning over the table and chairs so that it would look like they were at an outside cafe. I saw a fence die that I had and thought that I could make it into an awning. It worked just fine!

I cut the fence by Impression Obsession from blue card stock, bent down the top part of the fence and adhered it behind a layer of card stock above the table and chairs.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have been inspired to look at your dies differently and make them into something very different. Have a great day!
