Celebrate You

Hello crafty friends!  I have been quite busy with the Tinker Planet channel on Youtube as I'm trying to reach 1,000 subscribers.  If you have some time, please check it out.

For today's post, I want to share a birthday card I made for a co-worker using die cuts made with the Gemini Double-Sided Papercraft Dies.  I got them from the Crafter's Companion Mystery Box I bought earlier this year. I finally got to play with them this month, and I sure was happy I now have them in my collection.  What I love about them is the time you get to save for making multiple cuts in one pass.  Kudos to Crafter's Companion for reinventing wafer thin dies.  I have been eyeing layering dies for quite sometime now, but they are pricey for me.  I'm glad that these dies are now added to what few options that are out there.

This card features Decadent Deco.  So cool how 1 die can make 2 designs that can be layered together.

Materials used:
Stamps - Studio G, Stampin' Up
Tools - Gemini double sided die, Martha Stewart edge punch, heat gun
Embellishments - American Crafts Zing white embossing powder, K&Co. flowers  

I had so much fun playing with my new dies.  To see how they work, check out the video I made about them here:  Tool Test:  GEMINI DOUBLE SIDED DIES.

Stay safe, everyone... 'til next blog!
