Diecut Background

Hi everyone.....Lynne here
with a little more
"outta the box thinkin' "

I began by cutting an 8.5" x 5.5" piece of striped paper.
Then I die cut (3) Blooming Arbor images
from a light colored paper.

I applied Multi Medium to the face of the card
and laid the die cuts into the Multi Medium,
 I then placed a piece of scrap paper over the entire card,
pressing lightly to help all the pieces parts to adhere,
 trimming as necessary.

Now, it you look closely at the background of my card....
You can see the "Blooming Arbor" die cuts.

I brushed on a layer of Apricot Nectar Silk Acrylic Glaze,
and then added a layer of Precious Metal Effects Paint ~ Gold.

To finish off the card face...
I die cut (2) Scrolly Corners images
from black cardstock,
and applied to the card face with Multi Medium.
(using the same technique as above.)

Lastly, I applied a Textured Petaloo flower,
accented it with a ribbon, cord and tulle.

And there you have it....

  5. What a great idea, love your project - very original.

  6. Oh wow! I just used my first Die-Namite die last night on a card. It cut just like soft butter. I have some dies that give me fits, and worried when I tried these, might have the same problem. I'm so happy to say I was delighted & will be purchasing more. Your card is gorgeous, and thanks for the ideas you shared. Definitely something I will try to remember & use myself.

  7. Wow, this is gorgeous! Love that die! So pretty!!!
