Die-Cutting Made Simple

Happy day fellow paper crafters! I am absolutely thrilled to have you here today to celebrate one more submission for the Altenew AECP class. In the video Easy Die Cutting Techniques hosted by Yana Smakula I learned a ton of different techniques for die cutting. This is an excellent class for anyone wanting to learn something new and exciting in the land of die cutting.

Today I am using the large flower dies that came with Altenew Whimsical Garden Layering Die Set. This is a new set that comes with several different dies, and the possibilities are endless with this set!

To begin I used a pink shade card tent sized 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 and cut a piece of white cardstock down to 5 1/4" x 4". Next, I grabbed a piece of vellum card stock. (Vellum is a wonderful product for so many different techniques, and I always forget to use it.) I cut the flower frame in vellum and the lined flower die in white card stock. I also cut a piece of vellum 3/4" off the end for the sentiment.

I used Altenew Puffy Heart and Sweet Leaf crisp dye ink to apply some color to the back of my vellum flowers. After the ink dried, I glue my flower outline to the vellum, and placed them in opposing corners on the white card stock. Once the flower pieces were dried, I trimmed the edges, and had the smaller flower left. I didn't want to leave the little fellow out, so I found a home for him in on the side.

Once the card front was completed, I used a sentiment from the Altenew Beautiful Quotes stamp set and stamped it on the 3/4" wide vellum piece I cut earlier. Now that the card front has been completed I adhered it to my card tent with some foam tape for dimension on my card. And last, but not least I added some pink crystals I had in my bling stash and adhered them for some sparkle. I mean, who doesn't want a little sparkle in their day? Right!
