See how to use a patterned cover die to add instant detail to your cards!

When we designed this organic style patterned cover die we envisioned it being used as a more decorative lattice. Our designers have been doing just that and today Allison has another pretty twist on using this sort of leafy, sort of wavy cover die to add lots of textural interest to a a handmade card.

Allie started by taking a piece of white card stock and blended some inks in shades of pinks and oranges over it to create a pretty ombre look. She then spattered some white paint over her inked panel and set it aside to let it dry.

Meanwhile, she cut some flowers using our Buchnera and Stems die from scraps of white card stock and colored them up with her Copic markers. To echo the white splatters on her background and to add interesting highlights, she added some dots to her flower petals with a white gel pen. She also used our You Script With Shadow die set to cut more scrap of white and partially blended over the script portion with some bright green.

Allie then used our Organic #1 Cover Die to cut a piece of white card stock and adhered it with foam adhesive over her inked panel. For an amazing PRO TIP on how to do this fearlessly, be sure to check out Preeti’s video from the other day!

Next, Allie added her die cut and stamped sentiments with more foam tape over the patterned cover die and then arranged her die cut flowers tucked in and around and over them. She added a teeny tiny bow to wrap up her bouquet and popped on a few sequins for a little sparkle.
