Last week I saw a card on Pinterest, and wasn’t quite sure how it was made.
Initially I thought the die from the
Hometown Greetings Edgelits Dies had been used to die cut the houses
from a Whisper White Cardstock (CS) layer, and then adhered back down
having been moved over very slightly, so the coloured cardstock showed
through, rather like a shadow.
It was a very striking card, and it made me wonder if I could
make an eclipse-type card using this die set.
I’m sharing my first two attempts at this idea!
Neither of them are
quite right, but I’m still happy with the way they’ve turned out.
This is probably my favourite!
I had a problem when I was putting the Dimensionals on the back of the die cuts,
because there were a lot of small intricate die cuts.
For the second card I
decided to use the die that has the Church, one house and two trees on it.
I stamped the sentiment, which is from Hearts Come
Home Stamp Set before I started the die cutting.
Then I want to die
cut the scene once from each piece of cardstock.
My aim is to have
some extra Whisper White CS that goes lower down, under the bottom half
of the scene.
Without trying this, I don’t know if it will look any
better or not.
I have a slight criticism about my Church scene card,
and that is, aesthetically, the die cut scene is too high.
have my class today and must go and get myself organised!
I hope you
have a great weekend, and until tomorroow, happy crafting!
