Video: Change the Look of Die-Cuts to Create Different Shapes
Hello there, Michelle here. Today I have a card and video to share with you using the Circle Set Fancy Die set. These dies are very versatile – you can use them for a background, create grounding for a focal point, add die-cut inlay, plus lots more! For today, I thought I would change the shape slightly to create a sun.
(If you are having trouble viewing this video, please watch here on YouTube.)
I started off by die cutting the largest Circle Set Fancy Die from Deluxe Smooth White cardstock. I then took a pair of scissors and cut off the outer rim, to create the look of sunrays. I tried to make some of the rays shorter in length for added interest.
I then added ink blending on top using Dandelion, Butter Bar and Papaya Core Inks and Ink Blending Brushes (I used Extra Large for Dandelion, and Medium for Butter Bar and Papaya). I then die-cut another two of the Circle Set Fancy Die and adhered them behind, cutting off the excess, for added dimension.
I die-cut two Nesting Cloudy Infinity Dies from more Deluxe Smooth White cardstock, twice, and stacked them up also, adhering with Precision Glue. I then die-cut three of the 'friend' word from the Friend Words Fancy Dies set from Pitch Black cardstock. These were also stacked up and adhered for dimension.
For the accompanying sentiment, I printed out the Giving Sunflower Digital Download from my computer on to a sheet of Deluxe Smooth White cardstock. Before printing, I changed the size of the images to A5 to reduce the size of the sentiments. The 'sending sunshine' sentiment was die-cut using the Sentiment Strips Fancy Die.
The sun was adhered first to an A2 white card base using Precision Glue, followed by the clouds and friend word. I then added the sentiment strip with thin foam tape. To embellish, I added a few Clear Hero Hues Enamel Dots.
I love how the card turned out! Creating a sun from the dies really does make them even more versatile. Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you have a wonderful day!
