Altenew Academy - Class Nine, Easy Die Cutting Techniques

Class Nine in the Altenew Academy "Easy Die Cutting Techniques" is all about maximising the ways you can use your dies.

For my class submission I have selected this card created using Layered Medallion Cover Die B and Floral Fantasy stamp set, following the guide laid out in Lesson 4.

As crafters we love to get the most out of our supplies. For my class submission I wanted to use my die to emboss and created a textured card panel on which to build my design.

On to this textured panel, I have die cut layered stamped flowers from Floral Fantasy in dark and light tones along with the leaves. I wanted to play with perspective with this design and packed the card panel with stamped images, letting the leaves flow over the edge of the card.

I have mat and layered the panel with vellum and a layer coloured card using the same ink used in the stamping to achieve a custom colour. A little Wink of Stella adds sparkle to the flowers and I have finished with a die cut "hello" sentiment in black and vellum.

Stamp Sets: Floral Fantasy Inks: Ballet Slippers, Green Valley Die: Layered Medallion Cover Die B, Simply Hello, Floral Fantasy

Supplies: 7x5" Top Folding White Card Blank, Smooth White Card, Black Card, Vellum, Die Cutting Machine, Wink of Stella Clear, Blending Tool, Foam Pads, Double Sided Tape, Glue
