How To Use Dies To Emboss A Thank You Card

I had a play with the Brilliant Wings dies recently to figure out how to use dies to emboss a thank you card.

Today’s card features die cut labels from the Waves dies, die cut leaf image from the Meadow dies and a stamped and die cut butterfly from Brilliant Wings. I used the thanks sentiment from the Stampin’ Up!® Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set.

How To Use Dies To Emboss Card Recipe

A piece of Basic White card stock (10 cm x 14.3 cm) has been run through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine using Plate 1 and Plate 3 together. The die is placed onto these plates cut edge facing up, then the card stock is positioned over the die. Lay the silicone craft mat over the cardstock and die and complete the sandwich with Plate 3 on top. Run this sandwich through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.

When the plates are removed there will be an embossed image of the die and no cut.

On an acrylic block apply a few dabs of Calypso Coral ink from the ink pad. Beside this on either side of the Calypso Coral ink, apply a few dabs of Parakeet Party and then a few dabs of Starry Sky. Using a spritzer spray lightly with water.

Ink up a butterfly image with this mix, by lightly pressing a stamp onto the inks. DON’T move the stamp around too much!

Press the stamp onto Basic White card stock and cut using the co-ordinating die from Brilliant Wings.

Cut a leaf image and the large label from Parakeet Party card stock. Cut the small label from Basic White.

Ink only the ‘thanks’ word of the sentiment from Celebrating Sunflowers in Parakeet Party and stamp onto the small Basic White label.

Foam mount the small Basic White label onto the Parakeet Party label and adhere to the bottom left side of the embossed card front. Adhere foam mount to the butterfly thorax and adhere to the stem of the leaf, then adhere the leaf to the card front in desired position.

Finally, foam mount the card front and adhere to the card base.
