Easy Die Cut Only Cards
These are quick and easy C6 cards!
They feature different die-cut layout ideas, 2 different ways to add interest to card backgrounds, and super duper easy colour using Pawsitively Saturaded Inks by Simon Says Stamp.
Dimensional Cubes Background
First, I worked on the background panel for this card.
The Privet Branch wafer die was perfect for this porpoise.
Then, I glued the die-cuts over the stencilled panel, and just like you do with real flowers, I just cut parts here and there to create the arrangement.
Dibble Dot, Flowers, and Birdie Card
To make this card I first embossed a piece of white cardstock using the Dibble Dot 3D Embossing folder.
In the video here I show how to use 3D embossing folders ( Minute: 01:14 – 01:32).
- Flowers: Cadette and Tropic Pawsitivel Saturades Inks over the flowers.
- Leaves: Pearfectionand Pine mainly ( I added a hint of Lemonade to add highlights).
To complete this card, I also die-cut the little bird using the Layered Chickadee wafer dies and I applied the ink left in the brush after colouring the blue flowers + a hint of Tidepool Pawsitivel Saturades Ink.
I glued it all together over the embossed panel and I applied over the die cuts Spellbinders Sparkle Silk to add shine.
To embellish, I used Peach Opalescent sequins by Spellbinders.
