How I Made It

My first idea for using this die is to foil it with a hot foil machine. Some tips for this card that you might find helpful:

The second idea I have to share with you is in lay die cutting. I always enjoy in lay die cutting, and this Dahlia looks especially elegant in glitter cardstock. Important details to know…

Finally, the last idea I have for you is using simple die cuts with leftover backgrounds and scraps to make a fabulous design – I had this so much fun doing this, I made a whole bunch of these cards (keep scrolling to see them all)!

  • These cards are great scrap-stash-busters… I don’t know about you, but I have way too many scraps and backgrounds that never seem to get used
  • With the Dahlia die and the backgrounds taking center stage on all these cards, just some super simple greetings is all it took to finish everything up on these!!

Keep scrolling to see all the different cards I made using this design layout.

    These are all so beautiful Nina. You have no idea how happy I am hearing how excited you are about using up your scraps! I was beginning to think I was the only one who feels that way :) I have SO many scraps from years of scrapbooking and card making but I hate to waste any of it so I have become quite creative at using them. However, I still seem to have an awful lot… Glad you were able to put a dent in your.
    BTW, I really love you sentiment label dies and hope to one day be able to get them, you have no idea how much I would use them!
