Use your die cut words in a fun way to dress up a card!

We love using die cut words as focal elements on cards and today we are sharing a fast and fun project from Julie using one of our brand new Shadow Word dies. Something we’ve been hearing is that people are really liking the scale of the shadow we added and we are so glad! Let’s take a closer look at how Julie made this card so we can try this out ourselves!

First, Julie made her fun pink panel by cutting a piece of white card stock using one of our Rectangle Stitch dies and sponged some Fuschia Color Fuse Ink over the bottom half, concentrating the color from bottom to top. She then added all that delicious texture by using a spritzer tool and Copic markers to spritz those fabulous speckles all over the sponged area. Here are the colors she used:

Then Julie cut another Rectangle Stitch die cut with more white card stock and lined up the script portion of our new Birthday Script With Shadow at the bottom and cut it out. She stamped Happy from our Build a Phrase set just above where the word was cut out. She then cut a second Birthday from a scrap of white card stock and spritzed it with her blue shade for a pop of contrast. Julie also cut a strip using our Stars Die from glitter paper.

Now she was ready to put it all together! She added her inked panel to her card base and popped up the white panel with some foam tape. She added small pieces of foam tape to the back of the spritzed die cut word and inserted into the space at the bottom of the white panel. She added the sparkly stars at the top, added a couple of the tiny ones at the bottom and this card was ready to go in the mail to surprise a lucky friend!

Here are the goodies Julie used today:
