Today's featured die is item number 656053 Sizzix Bigz XL Die - Album, Brackets by Brenda Pinnick. (that's me!)
Versatility is the key word for this three piece die set! It layers beautifully or can be used as stand alone pieces such as frames, embellishments and more. Here, I've used it to create a vertical banner for my new grandbaby, Heidi - who gets called everything but Heidi! Her Mommy and Daddy are both foodies and her Daddy is a gardener who even gardens on the rooftop of the Four Seasons Hotel here in Atlanta where he is the executive Chef. Between the two of them, they've called her almost every vegetable name they can think of.... It's so funny, Brooke named all her baby dolls after food when she was very little. We had "porkchop" and "tangerine" as her two favorites!
I used my e-clips machine from Sizzix to create the type.The font is called Bean Pole- perfect for this project I think, don't you? I love how the letterforms go over the edge of the base pieces, it creates an almost lace like effect.
