Gilded Turtle Doves Paper Cuts Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

As promised, I have a sneak peek today from the Paper Cuts One Day Special that I'm launching on Hochanda on Friday at 6pm.

This card features the Paper Cuts Turtle Doves Die Set.

I started by adding a piece of CE Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet to a piece of Coconut White Card. I removed the other backing sheet and then added CS Egyptian Gold Gilding Flakes. I removed any excess using a piece of Rubit Scrubit.

I cut the Turtle Doves (dies #1 and #2 together) out of my Gilded background. I cut die 2 out of Coconut White Card and glued the 2 die cuts together using CS Glue in a Woodware Fine Tip Glue Applicator.

I cut one of the corner dies from the same die set out of my Gilded background 4 times.

For my background, I embossed a piece of Coconut White with the Creative Expressions Nordic Tiles Embossing Folder. I dusted with Anti-Static Bag and added CS Clear Perfect Medium Pen around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler. I added CS Pharoh Gold Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder and heat set.

I matted onto a couple of pieces of Coconut White Card and added my centre piece using Woodware 2mm Foam Tape. I added my corners using CS Glue in a Woodware Fine Tip Glue Applicator.

I'll be back tomorrow with another sneak peek.

Thanks for stopping by.

  5. I love this card Julia the die is very pretty

  6. Love this. Completely forgotten about gilding whole piece of card then die cutting from it - thanks for the reminder.

  7. Lovely card I do love the Paper Cuts collection. I bought the baubles one from you and am really intrigued to see if you showcase that one This technique would work brilliantly with that one

  8. Gorgeous card. I love die cutting card that has gilding flakes added.

    I guess, if one was really frugal and not wanting to waste the beautiful gilded sheet, one could carefully take the waste and paper pierce it within another die cut.
