Hello and happy weekend,
Today I am sharing one of my favorite cards created only with die cuts.
Blue is my favorite color and I have been thinking about creating a monochromatic project in blue tones for a while 🙂
I started the project with choosing several blue shades of cardstock.
Spellbinders Paisley die has been sitting on my desk for a few weeks so I decided to just play with it and cut out as many pieces I could from my chosen cardstock. For my card base I decided on the lightest shade of blue.
Once I had my card base cut (A2 size) I started adhering the die cuts. I layered the main 4 paisley pieces with another piece that was either lighter of darker shade of blue and offset the pieces just a tiny bit so the layers would be visible.
Once the main 4 pieces were adhered, I filled in the space around them with the rest my paisley die cuts.
At this point I thought the design looked little “empty” so I started inlaying the pieces I originally popped out of all my die cuts. I wanted the design to stand out so I decided to inlay the opposite shade of blue into each piece.
Once I was finished I die cut the frame and attached it to my panel with foam tape.
I cut my sentiment next, attached it to a vellum shadow die cut then backed it with two layers of foam tape for some extra dimension.
Supplies Used: Dies: Spellbinders – Paisley, Simon Says Stamp – Big Thanks; Cardstock: Michael’s; liquid adhesive, foam tape
I really enjoyed creating this die cut inlay card (even tho it took some time), I am very happy with the how it turned out and I really hope you like it as well.
Thank you so much for stopping by today 🙂
