10 cards with just 1 background die: Die Cutting Video

Die Cutting with just one background die!!!! Today, I’ve got 10, that’s right TEN, cards created with just ONE background die!!!! I am using the just released Wall Flowers cover plate die to create 10 very different cards! I throw in lots of techniques and tips along the way so be sure to check out the video below: To see a complete list of all the new products I used, click HERE. This Cover Plate die stole my heart the second I saw it! I love the open spaces! And when I first glanced at it, I saw smiley faces. Look closely at the card examples. Do you see smiley faces or am I just crazy! Onward to the video!!!

Each card created in the video features a different technique. Here are a few photos of the cards featured in the video with the caption of the technique listed below:

Die Cut Inlay, double heat embossing, double die cutting


Stenciled Die Cutting (Seriously, who doesn’t lick the bowl, or the spoon – or anything with something sweet on it)…..


Stacked Die Cutting (I especially love the white on white on this card)


Heat Embossed Stacked Die Cutting (the background was a background I had made preciously. Sometimes, I sit and make a lot of backgrounds and keep them and just pull out a background whenever I need one. This one screamed USE ME!


Double Inlaid Die Cutting (ok, so this is kinda the one where I highlighted the “face” of the die…… Do you see it?)


Ink Swiped Die Cutting (the heat embossing resists the ink, making for a really cool look)


Stecnciled Die Cutting, Dry Embossed Die Cutting (The dry embossed purple panel was a complete accident – refer to the video to see how)

What did you think of the cards? Was there one technique that you learned that you didn’t know before? Anything extra I could have done to make this video more compelling?

    Laurel, you are silly but also forgiven! I live the idea of using our cover dies in different ways. My question is:
    What can you do with one ink color family and one stamp to create a birthday card or whatever want to use as the theme?
