This is such a cool way to use a shadow word die cut!

We’ve got five options in the store for you to create beautiful script with shadow word die cut elements for your cards and we’ve loved seeing all the ways you’ve been using them. Many of the comments we get are that you are all grateful that we created the shadow part of the die cut to actually match the script portion and that the shadow is just the right size. Thank you!

Today, Allison is showing us a beautiful way to make your shadow word die cut “float” above your background and the effect is just so pretty and captivating but it’s so easy to do! Let’s dive in to the making!

First, Allie stamped our Poppy Bouquet onto a card sized panel of white card stock and colored in all the little details with her Copics. She then stamped her greeting onto a scrap of white card stock and trimmed it into a rectangle.

She then got out her die cutting machine and cut another piece of white card stock with our Nested Scallop with Holes frame die – saving the extras with the die for fast access!  She also cut our Friend Script with Shadow dies from scraps of white card stock. Allie chose to color the script portion of the word die cuts with a Copic marker to match the Nuvo drops she wanted to use.

Now the assembly! Allie adhered the script portion of the word die cuts over the shadow portion with some liquid glue. While that dried, she trimmed her stamped and colored panel down to fit under the frame and assembled the two together with foam squares and then adhered the panel to a card base with her tape runner. She then adhered her shadow word die cut piece right over the stamped area with more foam squares. She then added her sentiment with more dimensional adhesive and added just a few of those vibrant Nuvo drops and her beautiful card was done.
