Today's post reveals two different style cards using the same featured Tutti Designs Poppy Edge die cuts:


The Tutti Designs Poppy Edge metal die cuts beautifully.

To create the square card:

TIP: embossing folders with the same design as the die cuts can be used together to create interesting background, such as the flourishes shown in the first card:




TIP:

Wetting the die cuts makes shaping them much easier. Not only is it much easier (and lots of fun), but when the shape dries, it is somewhat hardened into that contour. The flowers were inked first, and then spritzed with water and shaped. After drying, they retained their shape beautifully!






For a shaped card, choose a shape that will accommodate the pretty flourish of the die:



Thanks for visiting today!

  4. I have never thought to emboss the negative of the die. Such a great tip and great way to use up scraps. I love the softness of these cards from the embossing, the die itself, and your distressing around the edges.
