Top Dog Dies Rainbow Birthday Card and Giveaway!

I am so blessed to be a guest designer for Top Dog Dies and they sent me such beautiful dies to work with.  If you aren't familiar with their company, here is a little bit about them. Top Dog Dies is a new online store that offers their own brand of wafer-thin and steel-rule dies, along with dies from brands you already know and trust, including Little B, Lawn Fawn, Taylored Expressions, Savvy Stamps and Cheery Lynn Designs. Top Dog Dies is also the leading U.S. retailer for Tattered Lace, a new line of intricate dies designed by British designer Stephanie Weightman.

Without further ado, here is what I created with their gorgeous Laurel Lace die.
I cut 6 colors of BoBunny double dot paper with the die and adhered them to the card base in rainbow order.  Then I wrapped Trendy Twine in coordinating colors around each border layer to add a little extra flair!  The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps.
Head on over to the Top Dog Die blog to see what I created for that post!  It used SIX dies!  Here is a sneak peak of it...
Now for the GIVEAWAY!
Top Dog Dies is doing a guest designer giveaway for the whole month of July! The winner will receive $50 worth of exclusive dies of their choice from Top Dog Dies.  Enter HERE!  Deadline to enter will be Thursday, July 31 at midnight Central Standard Time.

    1. Ilda, I never thought I would use manual dies either, but some of the intricate ones, like the one I used on this card, would be so hard to recreate with electronic die cutting machines. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you to win too, just so you can try them out LOL!

  11. Hi Beth! This card is stunning. I love the way you've used the colours from the swatch with the lace dies and the twine. I did a similar rainbow card for Crafts Beautiful a couple of months back, but I used scallop edged die. Thank you for joining in with the Cosmic Colours challenge. :o) Colette x
