In Lay Die Cut Shakers + Hop

Hi friends! Welcome to my stop in the Pretty Pink Posh and Avery Elle collaboration blog hop!


In this two-day collaboration hop, designers from both Pretty Pink Posh and Avery Elle’s Design Teams will be sharing cards featuring products from both companies; today is day one of the hop, and if you have already been hopping along with us, you should have arrived from my super talented Pretty Pink Posh teamie, Amy’s blog! If you are just joining in, not to worry! I have the full hop order listed for you further down in the post!

The cards I have created today use many different sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, along with some of their awesome die sets; Twine and Bows and Scalloped Rectangles. I also used a newer stamp set from Avery Elle called Big Greetings, which has some stunning script styled fonts included in the set. These products paired up perfectly together to create a fun and festive set of birthday cards!

In the video I have for you today, I will show you how I used in the lay die cutting technique to create the beautiful, multi-colored frames you see on each of these cards. Originally I only planned on making three cards (the pink set), but I had so much fun doing it that I decided to create three blue versions as well! Making multiples of cards in one sitting is a great way to build up your stash… if you already have the supplies out, it really doesn’t take that much more time to create more than one of the design! The biggest key is making sure you do each step all at once for every card; this saves time tremendously.
