I've been playing around with an older die that I had to see if I could make something totally different from my typical card style. I've had this Frantic Stamper Rose Cutout Border die for a while. Here is the most recent card I've made with it:
This is what the die looks like:
It only detaches from your paper along one edge (the top edge in the above photo).
I'm entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge:
To make today's card, I started off with a 4.25 x 11" card base that I folded in half. I placed the die along the right front edge of the card:
Then I manually cut along the fold of the card at the upper right front panel to detach the excess paper:
I then folded the card and traced around the floral edge onto the back flap of the card so I could manually cut that out:
The next step was to fill in the flowers and leaves. I decided to use two different shades of pink vellum for the flowers and white vellum for the leaves:
I didn't want all of this to show on the inside of the card so I cut another panel manually with the floral edge traced onto it and adhered it over the inside top of the card:
Below is what the inside of the card looks like now that I covered the vellum:
And this is what is looks like once it's folded up:
I don't own many vertical stamps and found this one from Hobby Lobby worked the best. I stamped it with Picked Raspberry distress ink and framed it with a layer of pink vellum underneath:
These are some of the cards I made last year with this same die:
For the above card, I cut the Rose Cutout Border along the edge of the card base and backed it with white paper.
For the card below, I cut the border out on white paper and manually cut around the top side to detach it from the paper:
The stamps I used on both cards are from the Frantic Stamper Clear Stamp Set FRA-CL-038.
There are so many other ways to use this Rose Cutout Border which can be seen on the Dies R Us Inspiration blog. Design Team member Connie made this amazing gatefold card with the same die.
