A Way With Words Cardmaking

You Are Perfect

July 25, 2020

IMG_0404Hey Friends!  It’s EK Gorman, and I popping in today to share with you a new card tutorial.  Have you ever found that your die is too big for the size card you want to create?  I just adore Suzanne’s Cannon’s A Way With Words Wreath & Elements die, but it really is meant to adhere to a project larger than 6×6 inches.  However, my favorite card size to work with is A2 (4.25×5.5 inches), so the die just doesn’t fit.  But today I am sharing a cool and easily solution to make the over sized die look like it was meant to be.

IMG_0397Step One:  Die cut the Way With Words Wreath & Elements die set out of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock.  You do not need to die cut the full die.

IMG_0399Step Two:  Die cut the floral piece that is meant to be layered under the Wreath flowers.  Color the piece with ink.  I used Abandoned Coral.  Adhere with Kids Choice Glue under the die cut wreath.

IMG_0398Step Three:  Trim a piece of Watercolor Paper to 4.25×5.5 inches.  Spray the watercolor paper with liquid watercolor in two coordinating colors.  I used both an orange and yellow spray ink from Tattered Angel.  Let dry or set with a heat gun.  Splash the inked cardstock with the lighter ink to create more visual interest.

IMG_0400Step Four:  Die cut the sprayed ink paper with the Stitched Rounded Rectangle die set.

IMG_0401Step Five:  Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the watercolor paper to an A2 card frame.  Using Kids Choice Glue, adhere the wreath, letting it hand off the edge.  Trim off the excess.

IMG_0402Step Six:  Die cut from 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock the piece of the You Are Perfect die set.  Leave the ‘you are’ white, but color the ‘perfect’ with an ombre effect.  I used both Canddied Apple and Abandon Coral Distress Oxide to create this effect.

IMG_0403Step Seven:  Adhere the sentiment to the cardstock using Kids Choice Glue.  Let it over lap the wreath.

IMG_0405I just love how you can get a whole new look using just a section of this beautiful die.  Do you ever trim your dies so they can fit smaller projects?  Let us know in the comments below.  Until then, Happy Crafting!

Hello Cards

February 11, 2016

Hello everybody, Sanna here again with my first post for February. When I first saw the Ribbons 1, Ropes 1, Chains 1 and Jewels 1 die sets I immediately wanted to create with them. They are so very versatile and can be used for so many kinds of projects! I chose to die cut some Clear Double Sided Adhesive with them and then cover those pieces with Silk Microfine Glitter. Boy, does that combination look fantastic!!!
