Enhance Your Die Cut Layers

Hello friends! It’s Teri with TerisMailbox and I am celebrating Fall with CutCardStock! I love this season with the cooler temps, bright colors and leaves!

See how to change up die layers with a few easy tips!

Create the Card Base

Trim a piece of Basis Light Blue Cardstock to 4.25 x 5 inches. Sandwich in Altenew’s from Land to Sea 3 D Embossing Folder and run through your die cutting machine.

Create clouds by orienting the waves at the top for a completely new look. Use a blending tool and add white pigment ink. Use a blue watercolor pencil from Altenew, lay it on its side and highlight the curves.

Create the Tree Layers

Die Cut the tree branches from Altenew’s Chestnut Tree Die set twice using Pop Tone Hot Fudge Cardstock. Glue them together for dimension.

Die cut the tree layers in layers of orange cardstock.

Basis Dark Orange is great from the base layer. Use Pop Tone Orange Fizz for both the second and third layers.

Enhance Your Die Cut Layers

I only had 2 shades of orange so I got creative for changing colors. A deeper orange in the middle layer adds dimension.

Check out the sparkles on the layer to the right. A jar of Gilding Flakes sitting on my desk called for me to add some fall-colored sparkle. Add a little glue and carefully rub a small amount of flakes over the area and set aside to dry. Once dry use a brush to remove the excess flakes.

Assemble the Layers

Attach the tree branch to the base dark orange layer. Add the additional orange layers with the sparkly layer on top!

Tear a small piece of Kraft cardstock to anchor the tree on. Add the tree on the right side, allowing some overlap to be trimmed.

Finish the Card

Attach the panel to an A2 Cougar 100 lb. White card base.

Use Stampers Anonymous Note Quotes Stamp to create the sentiment. Stamp and heat emboss the sentiment on Kraft Cardstock using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and Embossing Glaze. Attach to the left side of the card and you are good to go!

I hope you enjoyed seeing how I changed up the layers! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I’d love to have you follow/subscribe on my social media sites Instagram, Facebook, Blogger and YouTube all named TerisMailbox. Be well. Be creative!
