Isn’t the Easter egg die from Pretty Pink Posh adorable? The font is beautiful and the flowers and leaves paired with an egg frame, make it divine!
I love cardmaking, but I love it even more when you can use one die cut to make 2 different cards. In the cards above, I used the negative and positive cuts from a die to make the center piece of each card.
First make sure to add a double-sided adhesive sheet to the back of the cardstock you wish to cut with the die (in this case I used a gold foil and a plain white cardstock sheet. This makes it infinitely easier to assemble each card! For 2 of the cards shown above, I wanted to highlight the egg even more, so I first used oxide inks from Tim Holtz to create a soft background prior to adding the final die cut.
There are a number of ways you can do this, but I chose to first lightly adhere the positive die cut so that I could place all the negative die cuts in place. I cut out an egg shape from masking paper and then proceeded blend oxide ink on the card:
Once I finished adding a light handed oxide ink layer around the egg, I peeled off the masking paper. Finally, I adhered the positive die cut, added flower sequins & some crystal and VOILA- done!
It might seem like a lot of work, I truly enjoyed fitting the pieces in like a puzzle!
