Top Note Die

One of my customers brought me this beautiful card she made using the Top Note Die for the Big Shot and the Decorative Label punch. I think this is gorgeous and if you look closely, you'll notice she added a few basic rhinestones on the image.

I have a Big Shot club for those wanting to buy the Big Shot on a Lay-Away plan and while they are waiting to get their machines, they come each month and make projects learning about and using the dies. This month, we made mostly projects made with the Petal Cone Die Cut. I got so carried away with everything you can do with this die that it took them forever to finish LOL.

I will show you a few of the things we made today, and more in the next few days.

The first basket is made using the Oval Frame Die, the handle is made with the scallop portion of the Oval Frame Die and cut in half and the Big Oval Punch was used for the greeting. The egg shape of the basket is textured with the Polka Dot embossing folder and cut to make a straight edge on the bottom to stand up. The two "egg" shapes are attached to a small box I made to fit inside.

The Easter Basket is made using the Petal Cone die and cut down to stand flat. The handle was made using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch. Check out the "PEEP" inside.... she's sitting on a few Jelly Bird Eggs.

Lastly, the cone is made with the Elegant Soiree' Designer Series Paper with an added piece of Early Espresso cardstock, again using the scallop piece in the Petal Cone Die providing the scallop edge on each "petal". I used Early Espresso 5/8" Satin Ribbon for the handle and the bows on each side.

Check back tomorrow for more samples of what we made and have a blessed Sunday
