Two Cards from One Die Cut | by Tracey McNeely

Hi there, it’s Tracey back today with a little inspiration from Birch Press Design. I created two colourful cards from one die cut.

These cards were both made with the Grandiose Bevel Plate Layer A die. For the first card I cut one Grandiose Bevel Plate Layer A from 110# white cardstock and set it aside. I ink blended a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock with a rainbow of Distress Oxide ink to make a rainbow of pink, orange, yellow, green and blue.

I tapped a bit of water over the panel and picked up some colour with a paper towel. Once dry I die cut the Grandiose Bevel Plate Layer A die from the panel and because I am going to inlay the pieces into the white panel and use the outline for my second card. My die cut machine is a Gemini Jr, so the cut is facing up. A piece of 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ cardstock is placed over the back of the die and I flipped it over so I could see the coloured pieces. There are a LOT of pieces to inlay so this helps keep it organized.

I covered the back of the white die cut with strong double sided adhesive tape so the pieces would fully inlay. I used an embellishment wand to help me pick up the tiny pieces to inlay.

Once I was done inlaying the pieces I attached it to a white card base with foam tape for dimension. I finished it off with the Hello Honey Script die that I added with foam tape.

For the second card I used the frame cut from the first card. I cut two additional white Grandiose Bevel Layer A dies and glued them together, then put the coloured frame as the top layer. To finish it off I added the Thanks Honey Script die with foam tape.

Thank you so much for stopping in today. Come back tomorrow for more inspiration on the blog.
