I’m using the I Love You die in my project today! I first blended in some pink and purple ink on my card base and I flicked some white paint and water onto it for some interest. I then die cut my cardstock three times and glued them together. When it comes to intricate dies, it’s easier to layer them with cardstock than to try and use foam tape.
