With wedding season fast approaching, why not create a beautiful handmade card for the bride-to-be? We’ll show you how to achieve a delicate die cut look in just a few simple steps.
Materials you’ll need for this project:
Gray & white patterned cardstock (5×7)
White or ivory cardstock (5×7)
3D sentiment sticker
1. Create your card base
Create a 5×7 card base from cream cardstock, or use any pre-made card base. Cover the front of the card with a 5×7 piece of gray and white floral paper. We used cardstock from the Anna Griffin Georgette Collection for this particular card, but any cardstock or text weight paper will suffice.
2. Add an embossed layer
Trim a 4 ½ x 6 ½ panel of white or ivory cardstock, emboss with the Anna Griffin Francesca Lace embossing folder and adhere to card base.
3. Create die cut flourish embellishments
Die cut three flourishes from metallic gold cardstock using the large flourish die in the Lace Trimmings bundle.
4. Cut die cut layers in half
Trim two of the three die cut layers in half. These will become your four corner embellishments.
5. Create corner embellishments
Trim away excess paper as shown to create four embellishments for the corners of your card.
6. Embellish your card
Adhere one finished flourish to the center of the embossed cream panel using foam tape. Affix the four small die cut pieces to each corner of the cream panel. Add sentiment sticker to center of card, layering over die cut flourish.
We hope you enjoy giving this technique a try on your upcoming craft projects! What is your favorite occasion for card making?
