Rubbernecker is releasing some new die cut patterns and, lucky me, I got first dibs at playing around with them. I just LOVE how die cut patterns can add a TON of textural and visual interest to a card with just one roll through your die cut machine.  I used the same die cut flowers as I did in this project on yesterday’s blog post but this time left them one color and added some tiny flower buds to the centers for a totally different look.

Check out one of the new die cut patterns from Rubbernecker featured on this pretty card!

Before I start my project description I w ant to show the new Rubbernecker nested dies and shaped pattern dies. I will be sharing more projects using these dies in the coming week.

For today’s project I used the Diamonds Tattered Die, Flowers #3 and Tiny Flower Buds.

The Diamond Tattered Die Cut Pattern

  • Cut a piece of white cardstock 5.25″ x 4.00″.
  • Place the cardstock on the cutting platform and line up the Diamond Tattered die where you want it to cut.
  • Run through the die cutting machine.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape around the outer back edges of the cardstock and place a few small pieces in key places in the center of the diamond cuts.  Note:  mounting tape in the center of the diamond cuts will hold the paper up from collapsing. 
  • Attach the die cut layer to the card base.

Come see how die cut patterns can add so much to one project!

The Flowers

  • Cut the large flowers using purple cardstock and the tiny flowers using white cardstock.
  • Use green cardstock to cut the flower stems.
  • Form the large flowers using a large round stylus and molding pad and form the tiny flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Apply glossy accents to the back of the tiny flower and attach them to the top portion of the large flowers.
  • Use glossy accents to attach the flowers to the stems.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the stems and square pieces of mounting tape to the back of each flower.
  • Attach the stem and flowers to the card base.
  • Finish by attaching a white organdy multi loop bow using glue dots.
