In today’s video we are going to explore using a die set 3 different ways. I think it’s so important to use our supplies in the most ways possible to ensure that the price we paid is worth it! So in today’s video tutorial we will be exploring how these dies are put together, inlaid die cutting and how to create a collage or spirograph which is a new technique I tried out.
Above, you can see how the die was intended to be used. Layered on top of one another to create a beautiful Lotus. I just adore this die and it’s fine details. In order to glue this, I used a pen glue tip since it was quite thin.
For the next card, I cut out a bunch of Layer A lotuses in various shades. I used the frames on the card below and some of the inner pieces above. I love when I can use up those scraps. I simply fit the little pieces into a white frame.
Lastly, I cut out 9 of the Lotus A dies in three different colours that combine so nicely together. I thought of the clock here, as explained thoroughly in the video, and arranged them to look like a spirograph. It is such an interesting background!
