Two For One

Hey stampers, Anni here!

I love dies which provide two die cuts you can use for two cards! A lot of the Cover Up dies by Lil'Inker Designs are good examples. For today's cards I used the Cover Up Die: Swirls.

I started by creating a background with ink blending! To add more interest I flicked some water on it to achieve this bleeched effects.

From this piece of watercolour paper I die cut the Swirls background. Very, very carefully I removed the die from my die cutting machine, hoping every single piece would stay in the die. This way I could add dimensional adhesive to all the small pieces and gue it in one step to my card base. Not easy but so much easier than adhering every piece individually to the card.

I die cut the swirls background again, this time out of kraft cardstock and glued it to the cardbase using the inlaid die cutting technique.
I didn't want to cover up to much of my background. So I went for my sentiment with a big word die cut that I cut from vellum. Therefore I used the Say Hello Die by Concord & 9th. I used just a tiny bit of glue so that it wouldn't show up too much.

The negative piece of the background I added to another cardbase. This was much easier because it was one big piece.

I die cut Wishing  from W Plus 9's Sending Hoping Wishing die set out of dark brown cardstock and added it to a circle of vellum die cut with My Favorite Things' Inside & Out Stitched Circles.

See? One die - two cards!
