One Die 3 card sizes

Honey Bee Stamps Cone Flower|A2, Slimline & Mini Slimline ideas


I have been on a die cut flower kick lately. Today I am using the Honey Bee Stamps Honey Cuts coneflower layered die on 6 cards in 3 different sizes. Hopefully this gives you some ideas on how this die or a large flower die cut you have, can be used.

A2 CARDS

The card on the left was made with 2 flowers in 3 shades of pink and yellow/orange CS. I inked the edges of each piece with with darker shade of ink to provide some dimension. The same was done with the leaves included in the set.

Flower- Honey Bee Stamps Honey Cuts Coneflower die The stems where hand cut to be long enough to fit in the jar. I had to glue the stems to the vellum before I attached to the back of the shaker. I would use double sided tape and not liquid glue to ensure that no pieces can slip through.

Background - Double layered white die cuts using Photoplay lattice cover plate die backed in Night of Navy CS from Stampin Up

Jar - Mama Elephant Jar Shaker Die which appears not to be available. I backed this is blue vellum and the outside sides of the shaker are Gina K Sea glass CS stacked 4 times and filled with sequins, beads and glitter.

Sentiment - The Greetery opposite attract stamped in VersaFine Black and clear heated embossed. Die cut 3 times. There is also now a die set for the cursive sentiments

This Slimline card measures 3.25 in W by 8.25 tall as well

Jar - Mama Elephant Jar Shaker Die which appears not to be available. I used blue vellum over a piece of Hero Arts Arctic CS cut to look like water use the out piece of the die.

Sentiment - The Greetery opposite attract stamped in VersaFine Black and clear heated embossed. Die cut 3 times. There is also now a die set for the cursive sentiments.

I put some yellow pearls on the flower and a yellow glitter CS heart for some added interest.


I think I like the shaker version better.


Hope this gives you some ideas on how to use the same die on different types of cards.

I also die cut the flower in Bristol smooth and Neenah 100lb CS so I could try my hand at blended and comic colored versions. I'll be sure to share those as wells.
