Tutti Designs - Birthday Circles

Happy Sunday Friends!
Today I have another birthday creation using dies from the fabulous Tutti Designs Store and sharing a cutting technique that is fun and easy.

There are some amazing shapes & word dies available for purchase ... be sure to check them out!  And, for the price, you can't go wrong and will definitely NEED them in your die collection.

I had these adorable vintage images hanging on my pegboard
and they were just begging to be used in a creation
so I decided to use a technique I learned long ago but had totally forgotten about.

Quite easy actually.  You simply use every other die
in the set to die cut your image.  Then when adhering your image to your card panel, the outside ring is adhered flat, the next ring in you will use dimensional tape (single thickness) and the center circle you will use dimensional tape (double thickness) to achieve the dimension between the 'layers'.

Yet when looking at it head on, it all looks like one piece.

Please be sure to pop over to the
and check out all of these fabulous dies.
