Our multi-media decorative panel dies will help you to add the most beautiful detail to many of your projects, and can be used on a broad variety of fabric including thick leather, denim, glitter fabrics, wadding and many more, as they are made deeper than traditional dies.
However, we’ve wanted to demonstrate how versatile these are by showing you that you can create a stylish card too, as these dies will glide easily through, cutting intricate design detail and creating a stunning finish.
You will need
Black A4 cardstock (2 sheets) / White A4 cardstock (2 sheets) / Gemini Decorative Tessellating Triangle Panel Multi-Media die / Gemini Nesting Hearts Multi-Media die set / Sentiment stamp / Black inkpad / Collall All Purpose Glue / Collall Tacky Glue / Gemini die-cutting machine / Ultimate Pro
Use the Ultimate Pro to score and fold a gatefold card blank from one sheet of black cardstock. Cut two panels from the remaining piece of black cardstock measuring 10×20.5cm. Use the Tessellating Triangle Panel die to repeat die-cut the pattern onto both of panels.
Trim one of the die-cut panels from Step 1 to create two pieces measuring 3.5x20cm. Tip: this step is easy if you follow the lines of the die-cut pattern.
Cut two pieces of white cardstock measuring 7×20.5cm and one measuring 14.5×20.5cm. Use Collall Tacky Glue to adhere the black die-cut panels onto the white pieces, slightly offsetting the narrow strips as shown to leave room for the die-cut hearts in Step 7.
Cut a 9.5x7cm piece of white cardstock, stamp the sentiment onto it then layer it onto black cardstock. Create the embellishments for the card by die-cutting hearts from black and white cardstock. You will need three layered hearts for the card front and four for the inside.
Use Collall All Purpose Glue to adhere the large panel featuring the die-cut design to the inside of the card blank. Affix the stamped sentiment on top and glue embellishments in place as shown.
Glue the remaining die-cut panels onto the gatefold card front. Secure the three heart embellishments onto the left gatefold panel so they overlap the edge as shown. Make sure you only apply adhesive to the sections of the embellishments that are placed on the panel.
Your stylish, die-cut decorative panel card is now complete!
