Bold + Bright | Congratulations with Gayatri

Hi everyone,

This is Gayatri here hijacking Winnie & Walter Blog today. I have another bold and bright card to share. This card uses the Cover Model: Multifacted Cutaway. But first, here is my card.

For my previous card this month, I sponged a white cardstock panel in rainbow colours and die cut using Cover Model: Multifaceted Cutaway. I used the negative triangle die cuts from the die on my card. And I was left with the positive die cut. So for today’s card, I am using that positive die cut. I trimmed off the edges of the Multifacted die cut and adhered on a black card base by applying glue to only the centre of the die cut. I wanted the edges to be raised to give dimension. Love love the contrast of the rainbow colours against the black background. 

For the focal point, I simply stamped the Dahlia flowers and leaves from In Bloom: Addie’s Garden stamp set on white cardstock in black ink and fuzzy cut them out. I clustered and adhered the flowers and leaves on the card front. Black and White flower cluster lets the rainbow colour pop yet adding subtle attention to it. Sentiment is from Parentville Extras stamp set which I simple white heat embossed on black cardstock and adhered. Finally embellished with some gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

So get more out of your dies by using both the positive and negative die cuts to make two totally different cards.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day!
