Stretch Your Dies - Day 4 - Mini Dies

Yesterday was day four of the Stretch Your Dies online course and it was about mini dies.  I chose to use Carissa's technique of using mini dies to add interest to a patterned background.  I chose the mini hearts dies from Simon Says Stamp and some patterned papers from Stampin' Up.

Basically, you just position your mini dies wherever you wish the cutouts to be and run it through your cutting machine.  I used some of the little die cuts for even more added depth to the design.

It's a little 'busy', but I think it kind of works?  Here is the finished card.  I have shown a number of detail shots, so that you can see the cutouts better.

As always, thanks for stopping by and for any comments you leave, they are all truly appreciated.  Have a lovely day!  Hazel xx
