Houndstooth Ideas

Greetings Crafty Friends, 

Mary here today with three projects featuring the Whispers - Houndstooth Background die.   

Project ONE is this "HAPPY" card... To get this look, I die cut two of Whispers - Houndstooth Background dies (in yellow and blue). Then used a basic set of circle dies to cut a few rings out of my two Whispers - Houndstooth Background die cuts.  

I glued the rings to the circle Whispers - Houndstooth Background dies and added the HAPPY from the Corner Concepts - Happy Birthday die.   This technique can be recreated with any background die and set of nesting shape dies.  

Project TWO is this card... this time I used the Whispers - Houndstooth Background die in it's full form as a layer on my card.  I once again reached for my Corner Concepts - Happy Birthday die, this time sliding it into slits I made in the gray banner.   I love this card and have set it aside to give my Father-In-Law for his bday next month :)

Project THREE is this layout...  I used the the Whispers - Houndstooth Background die as a texture background. I tore the die cuts (4 of them) apart, so all my visible edges were rough and a little gungy.    

I hope you have enjoyed my three projects and that I have inspired you to use your background dies in different ways.  Until next time...
