Day 3 of the Online Card Class featured diecutting.
I made just three cards for this lesson. The first combines 1) use of nested circle dies used to cut out rainbow parts along with 2) handfulls of skinny strips mounted vertically to a backing in rainbow order and diecut into a word. Then 3) a cloudy sky background was created with an embossing folder and I cut it apart to layer with the rainbow.
Card number two uses more of the nested circle dies for a rainbow and the cloudy sky folder, but without the blue inking. This also uses a diecut sentiment in white made up of 3 layers of cardstock.
The last card uses scraps from the narrow strips mounted on cardstock. I used some to cut a sentiment on the diagonal to the stripes, some to hand-cut a cake and candle and the rest to cut plain strips. All were combined on a white card along with one of the rings from the nested circle dies.
The biggest lesson I learned was the importance of using waxed paper between the letter dies and the cardstock. The words just fall out instead of having to dig them out of the dies.
