How can you stretch your cover dies for different uses?

by Aga

Hello, everyone! This is Aga here today, and I would like to share with you a quick and easy “hello” card created with the Layered Medallions Cover Die Bundle. One of my most favorite things about making cards is stretching craft products to get the most out of them. Today, I'm sharing a way to stretch the use of your cover dies by fussy cutting out only various elements.

For my card, I used the Layered Medallions Cover Die A & B Bundle with white and kraft cardstock along with Gradient Cardstock Set – Shades of Purple (Midnight Violet, Lavender Fields, and Soft Lilac). First, I cut out smaller parts of the dies and used some negative leftovers to create a decorative pattern in the centre of my card.

Next, I added a bigger white element and finished the design with the kraft one.

As a final step, I added a sentiment from Label Love Stamp Set stamped in black.

I always try to buy dies and stamps that I will use over and over again. I have a hard time buying a stamp set or dies that only get used on a few cards. And I absolutely love this card! I don’t have any layering dies, but I almost want to go out and buy this set after seeing how versatile it is! Stunning!

I like how layered and built these cutouts up. I like the idea to re-envision products this way.

This card is tremendous! I love the way you have used your dies to make something really different and unexpected. Love the colors you used as well.
