Dotted Geo Cover Die
Add some pizzazz to your projects with this NEW cover die! This unique cover die is designed to cover the front of an A2-sized card. Instead of cutting through the cardstock, a dotted line pattern is debossed into the surface. This is the perfect way to add subtle texture to your next project!
Idea # 1 – Floral Window Card
I started with an integrated floral design. I blended and stamped the flowers from the Craft Your Life Project Kit: Lush Garden to create the background.
Then, I added a sentiment from the Versatile Greetings Die Set. But I was also able to add a sub-sentiment thanks to the open center design of this cover die.
For my second design, I decided to create a bright blended background using some Crisp Dye Inks. I love the way that the blending picks up the debossed pattern of this cover die.
I also added silhouette butterflies to both cards, which are from the Meadow Reflections Bundle.
But this time, I used a negative die-cut sentiment from the Bold Greetings Die Set.
You can see my video here or watch it in HD on YouTube. Will you create a rainbow butterfly card? How about a rainbow background? Let me know in the comment section!

Before you go, here are a few more fantastic card ideas featuring the Dotted Geo Cover Die!
Use it with your fave colored cardstock – just like Terri did in her card above. We love how the geometric pattern perfectly matches the Chemistry Vases Set!
Colored cardstock + ink blending = perfect combo! Check out how Teri made this cover die pop off the page! And would you look at that lovely sunflower from our Dancing Sunflowers Bundle?!
Another beautifully ink-blended background! Jenny went bold yet simple with her beautiful card!
Care for a quick and easy handmade card idea? Seeka simply popped up a gold die-cut word to finish off her fabulous card!
Black, yellow, and gold – is there a better color combination?! This miss you card by Emily is so gorgeous, we can't stop looking at it! Find out how she created it here.
