It's a Party!!!

I love the carnival. So many wonderful memories growing up and now we are making new memories with our children. Hi everyone, Erika Taylor here today to share with you a sweet birthday card using the Boardwalk Carnival Silhouette die. For this card I decided to create a shadow by cutting the first die in black, then the second with a polka dot patterned paper. Offsetting them slightly, to create the shadow effect. Isn't that cute??? These little dies are truly a joy to work with and so easy to use.

So lets take a look at my little birthday card inspired by the carnival. Hope you like it




Try your hand at creating shadows by doubling up your die cuts from Cottage Cutz. It really adds a dimension and is perfect for every occasion. Thanks so much for stopping by today. Make sure you leave a comment and let me know what you think. Until next time
