Stretch Your Dies - Split Sentiment Card Design

Stretch Your Dies - Split Sentiment Card Design

Design Team member Kate is back with an idea for handmade cards using diecuts that you may already have in your stash. This is an easy handmade card template you can use to stretch your metal dies and get more use out of basic shapes. 

It's a pretty simple concept. Look through your stash for dies that would still look like the shape they are after they are cut in half.

For the tree card, Kate used her stamping platform and some scrap cutouts of the trees to line up her design. She then embossed the sentiment in gold embossing powder.

The trees were added and topped with gold glitter stars. This would be a great card to mass produce for the holidays (and even last minute).

The heart card is along the same lines, just with a smaller sentiment stamped inside each heart. Look through your stash and see what you can make! Think circles, balloons, ornaments, presents...

    Mare- Yes. Cut out a heart, then cut that heart in half and put a sentiment in the middle.

    I’m a beginner card maker. Do I understand you correctly by:
    Take heart die cut, cut a heart top and bottom, insert sentiment. Is that all to the process? Thanks so much!

    What a great idea!

    I love this idea. Quick to put together but very nice.
