Svitlana is here. I’m a big fan of cover dies and I’m sure many of you are as well. Today, I want to show a way you can replicate the look of a cover die using die-cuts.
I started making my card by creating an ink blended background. First, I blended Starlight and Autumn Blaze Crisp Dye Inks onto a Classic Crest Solar White panel and then added splatters of clear water and Pure White Ink Spray.
For the cover die look replication, I used the Fine Bouquet Die. It’s a very beautiful fine cover die that cuts a beautiful floral outline image. For this technique, I recommend using cover dies that have a lot of opening space. Although, depending on the design, any cover die can work really.
So I made several die-cuts using this cover die out of a cream cardstock and adhered them onto the panel. I tried placing them next to each other to imitate the look of the continuous design.
After that, I foam mounted the panel onto a white card base and popped up the sentiment strip onto the card. The strip was made by white heat-embossing stamps from the Birthday Builder Stamp Set onto a Jet Black Cardstock.
Lastly, I added several white crystals. I hope you were inspired to replicate a cover die design on your next handmade project!
Have a wonderful day!
