Die Cut Word

Challenge #500

I’ve been playing quite a bit with a SSS stamp set that is fairly new and a set of Sissix thinlets. This is the 3rd card and so far the only one I have uploaded. This came about because of the challenge although I already had the leaves done ready on my desk and was thinking about how I might use them. Did several of these leaves from the set and coloured them with Distress Oxides adding some perfect pearl powders over the top for some shimmer. I kept them very soft. Used a couple of die cuts to add to the back for dimension and strength. The coppery layer is actually washi tape on top of a piece of cs which I then ran through the die cut machine after which it was glued to card front. Added the leaves and die cut the word from same CS. I used versamark and clear powder to get the shine before gluing on top. Added some gems for interest. I got this word die in Homesense a long time ago and have no idea of brand. Although I do like this card I prefer the 1st one I did. Will get it uploaded at some point but am waiting to see if it will fit a challenge before I do.

    1. Thanks. It is actually even more special to my eyes and even though I used one of the dies it isn’t cut but embossed. I used it as a sympathy card because a friend lost his father recently.

  1. I like these dies as one can do so much with them and cutting through washi tape worked better than I expected.

  2. It came as a small sheet and was difficult to adhere to cs because it got wrinkles. Then I saw a tip this week and tried it – what a difference it made. Using it as a layer then became easy. Glad you like it.
