Faux Cover Die Effect


Hello Crafty Friends! Today, we are sharing another die-cutting technique that will give your cards an amazingly unique and intricate result. Cover dies are all the rage in the modern card-making and fancy stationery world. So we decided to try our hands on at die cutting large dies and layering them in a way that mimics the results of a cover die. And the final product that we achieved after discovering this technique was so enticing and fascinating that we couldn't wait to share with you later. Let's have a closer look at the creation of this project!


Creating this card got easier with the large dies from blooming roses die set. First we cut a piece of silver glitter cardstock twice with one of these dies. We saved the negative pieces (petals and leaves) for another project that we will share later and only used the positive (outline) part for this project. To give a shiny dimensional look we adhered the die cuts onto a metallic paper and used colorful sequins as accents. To finish the card we stamped "You mean the world to me" sentiment from Pemberely stamp set and cut one of the edge at an angle. We glued the sentiment onto a foil sheet and adhered it to the card front. The result is a card with lots of glimmer, dimension and detail.
