Alphabet A La Mode Dies #160750

Alphabet a la Mode Dies

This is a Sneak Peek at NEW products coming Jan. 5th in the 2023 Spring Mini Catalog!! I'm having a fun time playing with the new Alphabet A La Mode Dies #160750! I used them here to create a special milestone anniversary card! I love the thin, tall design of the alphabets and numbers dies because it allows you to create longer words. This "40" was die cut in Silver Foil, using Adhesive Sheets.

 

Anniversary Card

These adorable papers are NEW, too - Country Gingham 6 X 6" Designer Series Paper #160388. You just can't beat CLASSIC GINGHAMS for general appeal!! SO CUTE!!!
