Now let’s see what we can create when we only use one of the layering dies! Today I wanted to have some fun with the Aurora Die Set, but I only wanted to use one of the layers, not all of them.
Since Fall is coming faster than ever, I wanted to chose colors that were warm and earthy (I am not sure if this is word, but it is what I see when I look at this card…LOL). I decided on a maroon, deep green, orange and kraft for my card stocks. I also had a navy blue but later changed my mind and did not have it part of the design.
I started die cutting my card stock with the Layer A of the Aurora Die set, once completed set them aside. I grabbed by paper trimmer and the kraft card stock and started cutting strips in the following sizes – 1/8 in – 1/4 in – 3/8 in. These are going to be used to create our own pattern paper for our card background!
I placed my strips on my design base at an angle using the various sizes we created earlier. To adhere them to my panel my liquid adhesive was perfect to ensure a good bond. Once they were all attached I used my shears to trim around the edge. I used my vintage photo distress ink around the edges to provide some shading.
I placed my die cuts on my design panel using my liquid adhesive and instead of stacking them on top of each other evenly I chose to stagger the layers. Now remember we are using only one die form the set! By staggering each of the colors it forms the shape of a flower! I set this panel aside so it can dry.
I grabbed a scrap piece of the maroon and wanted to use this for my sentiments. The sentiments I chose come from the ‘Just Because’ Stamp and Die set. After treating my card stock with my anti-static tool, I stamped my sentiments using my versamark ink and then heat emboss with fine detail white embossing powder. Trimmed my one sentiment and used the die associated for the other. I set my sentiments in place and set my panel onto my standard A2 size top folding card base.
