Top Dog Dies July Release Preview: Corset Die

Finally, the day that all of the Top Dog Die Designers have been waiting for is finally just a few short days (Tuesday, July 29th) Top Dog Dies will be releasing six new die sets.  I am lucky enough to have had a chance to work with the new dies and today I finally get to begin sharing them with you!  Even have a chance to win ALL of the new dies!  Every, single, one!

The details about how to win all of these great new dies are at the end of my post...but first off, here's the card I made using 3 of the new dies:
The brand new Top Dog Dies Corset Die is gorgeous with beautiful intricate details, just perfect for an elegant...or, possibly slightly naughty card for any woman.  Since this card is for my daughter...I went the elegant route and made her a card to celebrate what a beautiful, young woman she has grown up to be.  I cut three of the new Top Dog Dies Corset Dies in pink, white and black, layering the pieces for contrast and embellishing the edges with pearls.  For the skirt, I used part of another of Top Dog Dies new release dies...Top Dog Dies Flower Lace A2 Mat Die.  I cut one of the lace dies using plain old, thin, white copy paper and cut off a 2" strip.  Oh, does this make a beautiful lacy pattern!  I cut a second 2" strip of pink card stock and used my Xyron to adhere the lace strip to the top of the pink strip...making sure that just a bit overlapped on the edges.  I then accordion folded the strip and fanned it into the shape of a flared skirt.  I also used the Top Dog Dies Flower Lace A2 Mat Die to create the frame around my pretty dress by just cutting a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 sheet of black card stock, taping the Top Dog Dies Flower Lace A2 Mat over it, securing it with washi tape and die cutting.  You end up with not only a beautiful, perfect A2 frame...but also have a Flower Lace mat all ready for another project! (I will be sharing my project with you in a few weeks).  The sentiments are stamped onto another of the new release dies...the Top Dog Dies Banners #1 Die Set which includes 3 cute banners.

I've done a lot of talking...can you tell I am excited about this new release?  I'm sure you want to see what else Top Dog Dies is releasing next Tuesday, July 29th!  Here's a peek of the new dies:
