Glit­ter in­laid die ef­fects

Papercraft Inspirations - - MONEY SAVER - Guest ex­pert Linda Fitzsim­mons is on the De­sign Team at Crafter’s Com­pan­ion and loves a wide range of craft­ing tech­niques

1 Cut the Die’sire Fes­tive Flour­ish die de­sign from both sil­ver and pur­ple glit­ter cards then care­fully re­move the neg­a­tive pieces from each de­sign. Die cut two full cir­cles of the same size from white card. Cover one cir­cle with tacky glue and stick the main sil­ver de­sign in place, then add the pur­ple pieces into the spa­ces, us­ing craft tweez­ers.

2 Next, stick the main pur­ple de­sign to a card cir­cle cov­ered in tacky glue and add the sil­ver pieces into the neg­a­tive spa­ces. For ex­tra speed, cover the white card with an ad­he­sive sheet be­fore die cut­ting the full cir­cles and re­move the back­ing be­fore plac­ing the die-cut pieces in place. These pieces will do for two card de­signs!

3 To make Linda’s card, layer papers onto a card base and glue the in­laid piece in the cen­tre. Die cut a sil­ver cir­cle frame, us­ing nest­ing dies, and glue in place with sticky foam pads. Die cut the pen­guin in Sara’s Cute Christ­mas range from black and white glit­ter card and pur­ple mirri card. Colour the nose and feet with Spec­trum Noir pens. Add em­bel­lish­ments, to fin­ish!
