Hi everyone and welcome to Paper Crafts magazine blog hop. Today, we are celebrating the latest special edition from Paper Crafts called Die Cutting for Paper Crafters.
You should have arrived here from the talented Vanessa Menhorn. If you're into using die-cut machine, manual or electronic, then you should definitely check this out! So many cool & fun projects that for sure will get your creative juice going.
For today we were asked to create a card die cutting something other than paper. I for one love this kind of challenge and ended up making 2 cards.
First up is a card I made by die cutting cross-stitch fabric (aida cloth), shimmery translucent vellum, & felt.
I die cut the cross-stitch fabric with Papertrey Ink spiral note die and then spray it with Studio Calico Mr. Huey spray mist. Then die cut and stamp the shimmery vellum and the bird and put it all together.
Here's a close up of the flower. Hopefully you can see the beautiful shimmer of the flower. I just love the texture on this card.
I am so happy with the result of the first card that I decided to make another one. This time I switch it around. I used regular vellum paper with the spiral note die and then die cut it again with circle border die and using the cross-stitch fabric with the bird die. For this next card, I colored the cross-stitch fabric with Tattered Angel shimmering glaze. In person, you could see the beautiful sheen on the bird.
I think my favorite cards tend to be the ones with birdie. I just love using bird on my card.
