Posted by TheDocraftsTeam, 15 Mar, 2017
Xcut dies are great for a multitude of projects, and one die can be used in so many versatile ways to create different designs and finishes. This project incorporates patterned dies for those intricate and dainty finishes, perfect for all the ladies in your family! Grab a die, and get ready to spoil your loved ones with simple but effective hand-crafted notelets.
1. Cut the floral tile from navy cardstock and pick three more tones of blue. Die cut from each shade and gently release the die-cut design onto a piece of cardstock.
2. Cover a white piece of cardstock with double-sided tape. Stick the navy die-cut on top. Fill all of the space with your die-cut negatives in the other shades.
3. Die cut ‘Sister’ and a heart and stick at the bottom. Hand cut a small tag and tie onto the sentiment. Mount the panel onto a navy square and adhere to a card blank.
Fussy-cut birthday card
1. Cut the floral tile design on three shades of purple cardstock. Fussy cut one large and one small flower from the die-cut with a small pair of scissors.
2. Stick the small flower on top of the large one with a 3D foam pad. Add a silver gem on top. Cut a white 8.5cm square and place on a 5 x 7" card blank. Fill the space with your fussy-cut blooms.
3. Mount the white square on top and mat a square of vellum over it. Die cut ‘Happy birthday Daughter’ from a silver metal-effect sheet. Fix on the white panel to finish.
