Altered Dies #19

Hi Everyone. I hope you are enjoying your day. I have another altered die card to show you. I love using die shapes on my cards and here is an easy way to dress them up a bit. I started with the Crisscross Spellbinders background die, adhered it over green card stock and cut it out all at once using the Sizzix Fancy Labels die. Now I have a fancy look to my shape!

Step 1.

Step 2.

Here is the card!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed this simple way to add flair to your die shapes!

Great card and great idea. I have that crisscross die and hardly ever use it. Thanks for the inspiration.

This is super cute! I love the bird and the background does look very much like it belongs in a garden!
