Jen Carter LID Sparkle & Shine Tag Card Side 2.1 wm

First up is a card featuring quite a few new products on it!  I started by creating my background with a new cover plate die called Cover Up Die: Faceted.  For this card I used it like an impression plate which created a really unique background.   I cut the darker gray tag with the Pinking Edge Sentiment Flag die set and then stamped some starbursts from the new Girl's Best Friend stamp set.  The stamped sentiment on the tag is also from that stamp set.

This tag was so much fun to put together.  First, I LOVE this new tag set, Anytime Tags 2, so much!! It includes 3 different sizes of the stitched tag and I've used the 2 smaller of the sizes on this card.  I created the background of the larger tag with a new die set that I have been begging for called Long & Skinny Rectangles.  It has several sizes of "stripes" that you can use to build a background or use as a frame.  I used several different sizes on this tag.  The glittery silver ampersand die is from another new die set that I think you'll love called All About Ampersands.

I have one more card to share with you today and you might have already seen it if you follow my blog or viewed all of the posts for the Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Farewell hop.

    I confess that I still have a lot to learn about die cutting and was wondering how you made an impression using the Cover Up Die? Do you place a layer above this piece in your sandwich?
