Let’s face it. Big layered die sets like Epiphany are an investment in your craft room. And when you make an investment, you want to be sure to get value, right?
Each plate is really 3 in 1 – you get a circle, a ‘wreath’ and the rectangle outline. Multiply that by 3 plates and that’s like getting 9 dies. You can mix and match, stack or use single layers.
Start adding in different colours and specialty cardstocks like glitter or mirror and the possibilities are really endless.
Sometimes, you don’t have to have the die cuts on your card at all! I used die cuts as stencils to create a layered look on a flat piece of cardstock. Check out that ‘dimension’!
And by inkblending over the die cuts, I ended up with more pieces to use on cards:
Using black instead of white gives an intense, dramatic contrast!
For a completely different look I used the top layer of the smallest piece to create the look of stained glass.
Here’s a video showing how I used Epiphany to make 6 different cards.
I hope you’re inspired to try some of these, or find other looks of your own!
