Vertical Die Cutting on The Edge | Perfect Couple

When it comes to using coordinating dies there are plenty of creative options.

Hello, Everybody!

It is Ksenija here today and again I am sharing a card made with Die Cutting on The Edge Technique. Have you seen my previous cards made with a SINGLE and REPEATED Die Cutting on The Edge with the Sweet Carousel stamps and dies?

There is one simple reason that makes me love this technique. The bright pink coated dies from Pink And Main come separated. I do not need any metal wires cutters or files to separate these dies and there are no connectors’ leftovers damaging the card stock.

My today’s card features the Perfect Couple stamps and coordinating dies, as well as the Gold Glossy Dots.

To make my card I started with tracing with a pencil a vertical line onto a white card stock panel and partially die cutting the bears to the right from the line.

Next, I trimmed off the right part along the pencil line and stamped the image from the Perfect Couple set in black alcohol marker friendly ink.

I also stamped a sentiment from the same set in black archival ink for crisp impression.

To make a colour-wise balanced card I decided to skip the full colouring and to use just four alcohol markers.

Afterwards I made a card base. I picked the light blue card note and blended three shades of Distress inks onto it to create a night sky background.

To assemble the card I fun foam mounted the panel onto the ink blended card note and randomly adhered the Glossy Dots in Gold to imitate the stars.

I am well known for using minimal embellishments on my cards, often only for the sake of the adding a texture or a colour. These dome shaped super shiny dots stole my heart. They come in a pack of 77 pieces in three sizes. I adhered the smallest onto my card.

Do you feel inspired to use the coordinating dies not only for making clean die cut images?

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Have a beautiful day!
