Goodbye Winnie & Walter – Two Note Cards from One Die Cut
I have two “Clean and Simple” cards to share…
I usually just use scraps when cutting with dies, but with some pre-planning and careful placement, you end up with a “negative” on a panel that could be used to create another card. Bold word dies like the Winnie & Walter “In A Word: Thanks Cutaway” die work well for creating project-ready die cuts and negatives. (Sadly, I just learned that Winnie & Walter closed shop at the end of 2019.)
First, I used my airbrush and Copic marker (C5) to create the splattered dots on a white panel sized for the front of my card. Then I centered the die on the panel and ran it through my die cutting machine. It’s important to keep the scraps from the die cut (for this one – the piece between the “k” and “s” and the inner pieces of the “a” and by the “n”) because these need to be glued back into the negative space. By airbrushing first, the dots are on these scraps and match the panel nicely. In order to position the scraps properly, I temporarily place the die cut back into the “hole” and then glue the scraps into the areas of the die cut from which they came. Once the scraps are positioned and adhered, the actual die cut can be removed and used on a second card.
Because I airbrushed my dots before cutting, they are also on the die cut for the second card – bonus!! The embossing folder is “Honeycomb” by Darice.
Thanks for checking out my card projects!
