Fun with Die-Versions!

Die-Versions has another great new release, and I had a great time
creating with one of the new dies.

for my card.

Here's what I created:

To begin, I die cut the lamp from a piece of patterned paper. I put some adhesive on the back side, die cut the lamp again in black, and inlaid the pieces into the opening on the patterned paper. I cut one more time, using some yellow patterned paper, and filled in the light itself. To finish, I stamped a sentiment, matted the layers together, and Voila!

Note that this lamp post is a great size for your A2 cards! Some that I've seen are pretty short, but this one would make such a nice backdrop for other dies or images. Can't wait to use it again!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hope you will become a follower of the Die-Versions blog,
