Use one of our new pierced cover dies to add spectacular details to your white on white cards!
We are loving seeing all the ways you all are using our new pierced cover dies on your projects! They make the most heavenly backgrounds, don’t they? Julie’s card today shows us just how much delicious visual texture you can create by using one of these beautiful designs on a white on white card.
White on white is, of course, a monochromatic color scheme and because there is no “color”, all of the details come from the shadows which creates that visual texture that makes the eyes and the brain so happy. Julie’s use of this pierced cover die as her background elevates the whole thing to a new level.
Let’s get the details to make one, too!
First, did all her die cutting. She cut a card sized panel using the largest of our Nested Rectangle Stitch die set and then cut it again with our new Floral Swirl Pierced Cover die. For her center layers, she cut more white card stock with the two smallest of our new Fancy Decorative Nested dies. And last, she cut a variety of flowers and leaves with our new Stackable Flowers/Leaves #2 and Cheery Blossoms die sets.
Julie stamped her sentiment from our Flower Garden set onto the smallest of the Fancy layers with black ink and centered it over the other layer from the same set. She then adhered this to her pierced panel with some thin dimensional adhesive to the pierced panel and added the whole thing to a white card base with her tape runner.
Using a flower shaping tool, Julie added some realistic shaping to her blossoms, layered them together and tucked in the leaves to make her focal elements. She added these around the top left corner area of her layered center, saving one little cutie to sit opposite the layers. A few little clear gems to reflect the light and this beautiful card was ready to send.
You can see all the rich, captivating texture in the piercing in the background made with the cover die, the decorative edging on the larger frame and then the shaping and dimension of all the flowers. It looks so lavish but when you’ve read how to make it you can see that it’s really rather easy!
We hope you try out using one of our new pierced cover dies – they are all so versatile and, like any full sized background die, they cover the whole card front giving you tons of area with just one spin through your machine!
