Neat & Tangled November Release: Day Three

Hello crafty friends! Welcome to day three of the Neat & Tangled November release!


Today I am sharing a card that features the new Star Coverplate and Merry & Bright dies, as well as a beautiful in lay die cutting technique! This Star Coverplate is a perfect die for using in a variety of ways; from in lay die cutting (as I will be sharing today), to adding texture with embossing, or as a focal point to a card, even shakers! This die has many uses and I am excited to share my take on it with you!


I used the die with pattern paper from the Echo Park Deck the Halls collection; aren’t these patterns gorgeous?? I loved how these worked for the in lay die cut background. While this may be a bit more “time consuming”, I think the result is totally worth it!


I will show you in the video how I created this background and the entire card, which I hope you will be checking out below!








Before you go…!
