Be unique! - Die cut layering
Posted on August 18 2019
It is Zsofi here with a fun card which does not involve colouring but instead it is very dimensional thanks to the die cut layering.
I was absolutely inspired by the pretty yellow-blue patterned papers from the Puddle Jumper paper pad and I started with cutting out the strip with the anchors and roses. I die cut 2 mini scalloped borders from yellow cardstock and layered it under this elegant strip.
While I was die cutting, I also cut some tags for my layering using the Scalloped Rectangle frame set. I cut the base and the small one from white cardstock and the middle layer from an anchor patterned paper.
I also die cut 4 of the big stitched clouds (In a cloudy sky die set) from white cardstock and layered them under the scallop strip.
The sentiment (from the On the move stamp set) I stamped on the small tag using Dark Wash Jeans Hybrid ink and layered the tags. I added 2 yellow matte enamel dots as embellishment.
I decided that I needed a bit more yellow on the card, so I used the Plaid stencil and Lantern Yellow Hybrid ink on the card base to add some light, fade-out colour. When assembling the card, I used 3D foam squares to pop up the tag in the middle.
I hope you liked today's inspiration and will give it a try. Die cut layering is a cool technique and easy way to add interest and dimension to an otherwise simple card design. Until next time, happy crafting!
