Stacking Word Die Cuts for Effect

Today, I’m making a Thank You card with supplies from the October 2022 SCT Sampler. This is a monthly subscription with lots of papercrafting goodies that I just love. They always have either stamps or stencils along with a die in addition to samples of patterned papers from current companies in the industry. As I’ve said before, this subscription is a great way to build up your supplies and get fresh inspiration once a month. I don’t work for them and I pay for this subscription with my own money. I think it’s a great value.

My card features a two layer thank you die cut with a shadow background die cut. I think stacking die cuts make them stand out which brings more interest and dimension to the card. You can see the word die and shadow die in the image above and below.

The die cut was cut from 65lb weight cardstock from the Astrobrights Dreamy Cardstock Pack Assorted Colors and the pink background is also from this pack. The patterned paper is from the Print Shop Collection by Vicki Boutin over at American Crafts. There are lots of other goodies in this collection as well, such as pre-printed notecards and envelopes, ephemera and stickers, etc. The flowers were created with a die set from Spellbinders called, “Blooms” in their Be Bold collection.

You may notice the dots around the edge of the butterfly patterned paper. Those are actually perforations made with the Spellbinders Pierced Rectangles die set. This set is an older set I’ve had for a while and it’s no longer available at Spellbinders, but you may be able to get it on eBay or Etsy.

I embellished the card further by adding some iridescent border stickers along the top and bottom of the striped cardstock which mats the thank you word die cut. If you don’t have those, you can use a glitter glue such as Stickles.
