Lydia’s Crafty Corner- Creating A Cover Die Effect Using Singular Dies

by Lydia Evans

Hello there everyone, Lydia here with you again today! Did you know that we have a new video series over on our YouTube channel? Well if you didn't you do now. The series is hosted by me and is called Lydia's Crafty Corner and we have a new video go live every week on a Friday at 9am EST. This one is the 3rd video in the series so if you missed the others you may want to go check them out HERE and HERE. Also if you subscribe to our YouTube channel you will get a notification every time a new video goes live.

So one to this weeks project:


I started out by taking a piece of 4″ x 5 1/4″ white woodgrain cardstock and cutting one of the roses from Rose Filament Die Set into place in the corner. You are going to want to make sure that you keep all of the pieces cut out as we will be coming back to them later. Take all of these pieces and add to a neat pile. Then take another of the roses add it into place and die cut. Again keep all of the bits cut into another pile. Keep doing this until you have cut as many roses out of the layer as you wish, having a separate pile for all of the roses cut.


Next add the piece of the layer that hasn't been cut onto a piece of 4″ x 5 1/4″ acetate. Then add all of the die cut flowers in place. It's kind of like a jigsaw puzzle and I find it really fun to put all of the pieces back into place.

I then added this onto a colored cardstock card base (Pale Gray, Blush and Parchment). To finish off I added a sentiment using Label Love Stamp Set (Permanent Black, Blush and Sand Dunes for the respective cards).

Here's the step by step video or you can watch it over on our YouTube Channel:

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I really do hope you like the new Lydia's Crafty Corner YouTube Series- remember there will be a new video every Friday!
