Thanks for joining me for Winnie & Walter’s A Week to Die For, where the DT are showcasing the dies that came out from the January Release!
Day 1 is for The Big, the Bold and Party and The Big, the Bold and You cutaways – I chose to play experiment with a partial die-cutting technique. Here’s my card:
You may recognise the brightly coloured rings in the background from this card. I tellya, I had so many die-cut circles left over from that card! I chose to use some of them up by adhering them straight down on to a card base, and trimming off the excess.
On a separate panel of white cardstock, I partially die-cut the ‘celebrate’ sentiment and foam mounted it to the card front. Here’s a close-up:
I did have to practice a little to ensure I wasn’t die-cutting the sentiment out completely, but the end result is definitely worth it!
I also think you could create a card set from this concept just by changing up the background – doesn’t necessarily have to be inlaid die-cut circles, could just be pattern paper, or Distress Ink blending…so many ideas!
To finish, I added a couple of sequins and some wood veneer stars.
Be sure check out projects from Julie and Shay on the Winnie & Walter blog, along with the rest of the Winnie & Walter talent.
Thanks for stopping by!
