Can't wait to try this - it appears tricky! I have always just glued layers of the word together......this looks much neater. As always, thanks for the technique tip!

Such gorgeous cards, and your die-cutting technique has me dazzled! LOVE what you've shared; brilliant and so much easier than cutting multiples of the die. Question: what kind of tape did you use,please? I need to shop!! Hope you're feeling better! Hugs!

Just how do you come up with all of these amazing ideas?!! I'm blown away every time! And the cards for this week made my heart flip flop (a few times) - they are so awesome!!! I can't try this technique just now though...can you believe I STILL don't have a die cutting machine! Thanks, as always, for sharing, and I hope you are feeling a whole lot better!!!

G-e-n-i-o-u-s!!! Thanks for sharing the idea and what doesn't work so well. I am just shaking my head that I have not tried this before - cutting miniscule slivers of tape to fit the shapes is just way more work!
