For today’s project I’m bringing you some two-in-one cardmaking inspiration with what is probably my favourite item of this new release: our Metric Stitched Rectangles Dies (EU Size). I’m certain this is going to be a total hit among card-makers in Europe, as it is the first of its kind. The standard card size in the US is A2 (the equivalent of a letter-size paper folded in half twice). In Europe we tend to use A4-size paper instead of letter-size, and the largest rectangle in this die set is the equivalent of an A4-sized paper folded in half twice, which makes our standard A6 European card size! As if that wasn’t enough, this set has stitching on both sides of the cut line, giving you beautiful stitching detail on your positive and negative pieces.
To create this card I used the second largest rectangle in the set to cut out a window from my teal card base. I then adhered a piece of acetate behind that window for a very special effect. After that, I used the positive pieces cut out with all the smaller rectangles in the set and adhered them one on top of the other on the inside of my card, behind my acetate window. The smallest piece, however, I glued on top of the acetate for that extra umph! The little birdie and the sentiment are from our very popular release four set called “Wingman” which I’m sure you all know by now.
My second card project for this blog hop is a birthday card which was very quick and easy to create, as I did so using the little frame pieces which I had left when cutting out the rectangles for my previous project. The “happy” and “birthday” Heffy Cuts dies are also from our latest release and they are sure to be a versatile addition to your collection, since they can be paired up with our new “winter” and “wishes” Heffy Cuts dies for a bunch of different sentiment combos (happy birthday, birthday wishes, happy winter, winter wishes, winter birhtday wishes, etc.).
So that’s it from me for today. I leave you with one last photo to wrap up this post. Please remember to tag us on social media when you put your new release goodies to good use, as we love to see what you create and often find inspiration in your work too! Until next time… happy hopping! Next stop: Jessica’s blog.
