Playing again.....

This time I saw where someone had used multiple diecutting to create layered effects without bulk. I liked it so had a go at it - mine is a little clumsy and I need to workout how I am going to cause the diecut to stick without getting a thick die cut or glue everywhere....think I finally got it sorted, more on that later.


I used the same colour way as the example - gold and purple - but different dies as I did not have the one they used. I also used scraps to try and clean up the workspace!!


SU provided the sentiment stamps


Different look depending on the light bouncing off the page


This one was the first one and the bird was a surprise cut!
I didn't realise I would get a border.....


My 'greenery' is really green icicles...


The flowers were used after the event to try in fix some problems!

It's a good technique but I need to practice it more.

I have to try this, love the layered effect and it's a great way to use scraps leftovers! The bird with the white border looks great and love the purple flowers and gold colors combo in the first one!

Great cards. Do like the use of the icicle very clever, great way to extend the use. Best of luck clearing the scrap bin! I'm trying to die cut small things (particullarly flowers cause they often seem to find a place) as I go so the scrap doesn't build up - the result little bags of die cuts instead.
Curious to know what you used to adhere the die cuts so as not to get bulk. Perhaps liquid glue?
