Hello there, everyone and happy Friday! Lydia here. Today, I’ll be sharing how you can add color to your delicate die-cuts.
I started by cutting the dies from Festive Clusters Die Set from white cardstock. When backing the images, you will want to start with the image that is in the front of the composition. For this die set, it’s the poinsettia, so I took my die-cut and placed it down onto Ruby Red Cardstock. Then, I drew around the image. I fussy cut this and then adhered it to the back of the die-cut using wet glue.
I found that using wet glue for this gives a little more wiggle room to get it into place. Once this is done, you can then do the same for the rose image; I used Frosty Pink Cardstock. For the leaves that are on the outside of the image, I added a little cardstock to these and then fussy cut around the die-cut. This technique can be a little fiddly, but I do think that is worth it in the end.
For the sentiment, I used Fancy Peace Die cut from Jet Black Cardstock. Before I adhered the pieces down onto my card base, I thought it needed a little something more in the background. Flowers & Leaves 3D Embossing Folder came to the rescue. I just love that it adds a little more but doesn’t take away from the rest of the design.
