Runway Inspired Challenge #54

Hello, hello!

Today, I sharing with you my take on this week’s Runway Inspired Challenge, and it’s another beautiful dress. The sponsor is Ellen Hutson – be sure to play along for the chance to win a fantastic prize!


Here’s my card, based on the colours of the dress:

I went for the long format card again, as it seemed to work so much better with the feather element. Something didn’t feel right when I tried to make it work on a standard A2 sized card, but I like all the white space.

I began by creating some coloured panels using Distress Inks and then die-cut the hearts using CAS-ual Fridays’ Heart Board Die (twice). I adhered the hearts onto some black paper in a multicoloured arrangement and die-cut the feather using Kelly Purkey’s Feather dies.

You could call this a sort of double die-cutting technique – it works really well when you have the right combinations of dies! The sentiment comes from Technique Tuesday’s Loving Words set, but I only partially stamped it in Versafine Onyx Black.

    Awesome use of the heart board die, Mayuri!! Love your double die-cutting. Totally agree with your long format card base to go with the proportions of your long feather. It just feels right.

    As I was reading your process, I was thinking “double die-cutting,” and was so happy to scroll down and see that you called it the same thing!! I think you invented a new technique, and I can’t wait to give it a try!

    This card is absolutely stunning!! It really does look like you die-cut the dress itself! What a brilliant technique you came up with, would never thought of that myself. Genius!

    This card is just delightful! I could stare at it all day. I absolutely LOVE everything about it. I don’t think I’ve ever tried making a long cards like this. It looks so elegant 😉
