Made a card using one of the dies from the awesome Papertrey Ink “One Liners: Happy Die” set.


Besides cutting the die out of the plaid patterned paper, three cuts were made with white cardstock.  All four layers where glued together with the plaid piece on top.  It was then placed back into the cutout on the plaid paper.  Love the dry embossed look this creates.


When I ordered this die set I accidentally ordered two sets. Smiley.SheDidItAni
