I wanted to share a set of cards that I created using negative die cuts. Last month, I had made this card. One of the dies that I used for the card was Flower Portrait (51-114). The part of the die that I used was the flowers (which were colored using the watercolor smooshing technique found here). What was left was the negative die of the flowers as well as the frame. I really liked the colors of the die cuts and I decided to save them for a different purpose. Not only did I save the negative cut but flower centers as well!
I simply cut a small card panel out of arcrylic paper (I love the texture of it) and mounted the negative die cut on top along with the flower centers. I then added the panel to a card base and then added a sentiment. Each sentiment was stamped with Black Onyx Versafine ink and then embossed.
I used the cards for Mother’s day which I sent to my Mother-in-Law and Sister-in-Law who just had a baby.
Here are closeups of each card.
I really love this versatile die and I used the frames for another card which I will share at another time. Just a simple way to use all the cuts from your die.
Until next time!
