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.
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.
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.
- 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.
