Today is Day 2 of the new release blog blitz! Each day during the blitz the designers at Birch Press Design will be showcasing some of the fabulous new dies that were just released. With each day comes a chance at a different prize! Today I have the pleasure of introducing the Viva Layers die set!
The beautiful mandala in this set is loaded with possibilities just by switching up the colours of paper you choose either for the whole mandala or by using one set of colours for the outer ring and a different assortment for the inner circle like I did for my sample today. I started off by cutting each layer with a different colour.
I used the new Mandala Card Base craft die and the Mandala Circle die to support the arrangement of my design. I used the turquoise blue as the base for my mandala, using it for both the outer ring and inner circle.
I used a sentiment from the Time to Celebrate clear stamp set along with the You Sugar Script die cut with sparkly silver paper.
I reversed the order of the colours from the outer ring for the inner circle to give it a cohesive look. The mandala inlays right into the Card Frame and once you add the other layers the finished mandala is raised giving it wonderful dimension.
Now for the part you’ve been waiting for… The prize on this post is the Viva Craft Die Layer B
Viva Layer B has beautiful stitched detail and would look lovely on it’s own.
Let me fill you in on all the details.

May 2, 2018 — 1:06 pm
I have to be honest: when I first saw the dies in the B.P. online store, I thought there was a) no way I would spend that much money and b) they looked complicated. BUT, the cards I’m seeing uploaded are beautiful; I’ll figure out the $$; and watching Jennifer McGuire’s how-to video assured me they are not complicated. These dies are items that fall into the “I want them all” category!
May 2, 2018 — 1:22 pm
Love how these dies layer. So beautiful.
