A paper quilt.
Good morning! Emily Midgett here with you today with a card made using only die cuts! I love the idea of being able to make multiple cards in one sitting, and the Hexagon Cover Plate die allows me to do just that! Using just some fun colored card stock, strong adhesive, and some dies, I created two cards in a short amount of time. Let’s get started with the details!
I started by die cutting the Hexagon Cover Plate three times: once from white glitter card stock, once from mint card stock, and once from hot pink card stock. I tried to keep as many of the individual die cuts within the whole die cut as possible, just for organizational purposes. My next step was to cover an entire A2 card front using 1″ Scor Tape. After removing the individual pieces, I placed my first die cut outline (the white glitter) on this very heavily taped card front, then filled in the gaps using a combination of all three colors of card stock die cuts. I love this technique, especially with these hexagons. It looks like a quilt, don’t you think?
I repeated the process again using the mint cover plate die cut. I intended to make a third with the hot pink, but I did end up losing a few of the individual pieces and so could only make two full card fronts. I added the die cut “hugs” with dimensional foam adhesive and added some Moonlight Rhinestones for some texture.
Well, that’s all for me today! Sometimes it’s fun figuring out ways to create a card using only my dies and some cool card stock. Figuring out the pattern was so fun, too!
Thanks so much for visiting, and have a marvelous weekend!
