Make It Monday // You Make Me Happy {Top Dog Dies}


Welcome to another Make it Monday! I’m loving being part of the Top Dog Dies team and creating something fun every week!. The dies are adorable, they’re sized perfectly for so many projects – from cards to scrapbook layouts to itty bitty lunch box love notes!

For today’s post, I really wanted to use the Rainbow Die Set, along with the Pretty Petals #2 Die Set. I had the idea of a rainbow spilling out into an explosive rainbow of flowers! Both of these dies were perfect for the card and made it a breeze to create!

I used 6×6″ paper pads – the small patterns on small pads are perfect for cards! Avery Elle Happy Collection, Lawn Fawn Happy Day Collection, and a few pieces of scrap paper brought this all together beautifully!

I stamped the Avery Elle sentiment using Versamark and embossing powder, and heat set it for a pretty glossy look.

Before I glued everything down, I laid it out so I could figure out spacing. I definitely recommend doing that and starting from one corner and working your way in. Trust me 🙂
