A slice of intricate beauty with Create a Card Cut In Panel Dies

Crafter's Companion – 13/10/21

Add a slice of delicate die cut beauty to your cardmaking creations with the Create a Card Cut In Panel Collection from Gemini!

Each set in this collection cuts a stunning design down the middle of your card fronts to create an elegant and eye-catching effect that simply couldn’t be created using scissors or a craft knife. 

How do Cut-in Panels work?

This papercraft collection from Gemini has been designed to be extra versatile. So, you can choose to place your cut-in panel wherever you like on your card front.

Whether it’s landscape, portrait, left or right aligned you can move your Cut in Panel Die to fit your creative vision! 

Each die set has been designed to work perfectly with 6” x 4” and includes two dies, one to create the cut-in panel design and one outside frame die.

This gives you the option to cut directly in your card base or combine with the frame to create a beautiful stand-alone panel to use as a centrepiece. 

Are they easy to use?

Like most Gemini die collections, the Create-a-Card Cut In Panel dies are accessible for all abilities of crafter. So, even if you’re a bit of a novice when it comes to die cutting – you will be able to recreate these stunning and intricate designs with ease.

All you need is a die-cutting machine, a die and your chosen card or paperstock. Simply create your plate combination using the helpful Sandwich Guide in the instruction manual and run through your die-cutting machine.

What effects can I create?

These dies are ideal for experimenting with a wealth of different effects! Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Layer with patterned paper, vellum, coloured card or acetate to make the detail really shine
  • Use the cut-in panel with a frame to create an intricate shaker card design
  • You can even use the panel as a stencil to create colourful and detailed designs!
