If you saw Nikki's post on Sunday you probably noticed how she took a Valentine die and made it work for St. Patrick's Day. I love the way the CottageCutz dies are so veratile this way.
A few examples are:
Holiday die used for another holiday
Holiday die used for an everyday sort of project
Adapting a die to match your patterned paper
Using part of a die to accent another one
In my card below I used the CUPCAKE MINI die from the Valentine release and left the heart off but added sprinkles to match my patterned paper.
I used the tiny holes from the CIRCLES W/EYELETS die to make the sprinkles. I took a few scraps and ran them through my diecut machine and then popped out the holes over my cupcake that I had applied Glossy Accents to.
We'd love to hear from you and how you've adapted your CottageCutz dies to meet your needs on a project.
Have a great day!
