Well its back to technique day and today I wanted to share this technique of leaving the die cut piece in place or alternatively repositioning it back into the waste piece. We all use the die cut shape we get as a feature, highlight or part of a design on our cards however we can achieve lots of different looks by placing it inside either the piece it was cut form, as in the below silver card, or by putting it into a piece cut in a contrasting colour.
In the card opposite I have taken a cut of the Couture Creations die in Blush card, coated it in pink gilding wax, and inserted it back into a piece of milk foundation card from which I had cut the same die.
In the below card I have simply die cut the rose again in silver Shimmerlux foundation card twice however I have left it in the piece I cut (by sticking another piece of card onto the back using double sided adhesive sheets.
The final card shown, again using the rose die, shows just the aperture with a piece of double sided sheet behind and the void filled with glitter jewels. You could add back in the rose die cut before adding the glitter jewels to make a different look again.
Three cards using similar if not exactly the same technique that I hope will prompt you into looking at your dies and seeing which would work with this technique!
