Top Dog Die – Baby Shower Invite

Hello everyone!!  It’s Top Dog Die Wednesday!!  I’m here with a die that was totally a lifesaver for me.

My nieces mom called me a couple of weeks ago and wanted to know if I could make 100 baby shower invitations for her coworker’s daughters.

I said absolutely!!  They wanted a onesie with the colors hot pink and leopard. My first thought was to just create a digital invite but as I created the invite, I wasn’t impressed.

So, I decided to make the card out of an actually onesie.  I knew I didn’t have any die that would make my job easier.  I thought about cutting out the invite, but when the number 100 started swirling, I decided against that.

So I went on a search for a onesie die!! Just my luck, Top Dog Die had actually what I wanted.  Check out these die:

Take a look at my invite:

I loved how this invite turn out.  Nice and elegant.

When I first started, I messed up about 10 sheets of paper that ended up in the trash.  I tried pattern paper and I wasn’t getting the look I wanted. So I searched high and low for pattern paper that fits with what the customer wanted.

Yayyy, I found the paper in two different Micheal’s store. I bought 50 sheets of this paper.

This is how I created theses invites:

1. I used the die to die cut the onesie out of this leopard paper.

2. I added a white bow to the outside.

3. I typed the invite information and then die cut that out with the finisher die set.

4. I boxed them up and tied a pretty bow on the box.

Nice and easy!!

So what do you think?

The supplies are hard to list since I’m not sure what the paper is called.  The pattern paper and ribbon is from Micheal’s.

You could us any paper you would like and design the card in tons of different ways!

The box is Stampin’ Up! Extra Large Gift Boxes and the ribbon is a retired Stampin Up product.

Thank you for stopping by!

Top Dog Dies Dotted Tags

Hello everyone!!  Happy Wednesday!! Friday is in sight now, yes!  I need a day off!!  LOL!!

Wednesday’s are my Top Dog Dies days!!  I’m here today to share another new die they released last week!

Take a look:

TDD Dotted Tags Die SetTop Dog Dies Dotted Tags Die Set

They are super cute and will fit on any box, card and scrapbook page.  The stitched edges are so pretty!

Take a look at my totally awesome gift box:

Be Mine box

You can give this box to anyone, simply change the sentiment from “Be Mine” to something that would suit your recipient.

I used the heart die from Top Dog Dies Heart Mini Album Finishers Die Set, to create all of those small hearts on my box!!

Take a closer look at my box:

Be Mine box closeup tag

I attached the tag under one of the glitter hearts and it fit perfectly.  No string needed!!

Be Mine box side view

I added the glitter hearts on both sides of the box.  This box is big enough to hold a nice size gift!!

I added a bag fill of chocolate to this box.  I’m giving my box to my daughter.  I have to make another one for my son.

Here is how I created this gift box:

1. I stamped the big and small heart from Waffle Flower Crafts DT Mix Stamp Set on my box using Versamark Ink.

2. I put the box together buy folding on the score lines. I added my chocolate to the box now because when I add the decorations to the box, you can’t open it back.

3. I used my retired Stampin’ Up! Scallop border punch to create the scallop border out of Stampin Up! Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

4. I attached the border punched cardstock to the edge of the white cardstock.  Then I adhered the entire piece to the takeout box using Tombow X-treme adhesive.

5. I attached 5 pieces of Stampin’ Up! Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine around my box.

6. I die cut 16 small hearts from Top Dog Dies Heart Mini Album Finishers Die Set and attached them to the bakers twine with glue dots.

7.  I die cut my tag from Top Dog Dies Dotted Tags Die Set and stamped my sentiment from Stampin’ Up! You Plus Me stamp set. I adhered it to my box.

That was super easy to create and the recipient will love it.  Head on over to the Top Dog Dies shop to see what they have to offer. You will not be disappointed.

So what do you think?  Let me know below.
