Woo hoo! The day is here! It's release day over at Uniko Studio and all of the wonderful products that have been showcased over the past few days are available for your crafting pleasure! :D
We're celebrating the fabulous release with a good ol' fashioned blog hop. You should have hippity hopped over here from the Uniko Studio blog - if you haven't be sure to start there and hop along; one lucky commentor will win the entire August release!
Now today's card features that cool graphic flower die again. What can I say? I just love it so much! I created this almost lace border effect with it by die cutting half of the shape repeatedly. I like that it all sits flush against the white card stock and has an almost floating effect. Is it magic? Nope. It's the wonders of acetate. Mainly placing a layer of acetate behind a panel of cardstock and attaching my die cut shapes to it. Simple!
- When it comes to creating a border, I like to start in the middle first to ensure that the design is equally balanced on each side. This simply meant that I die cut half of the graphic flower die from the top centre of the white card before cutting it again either side.
- Acetate is the magic when it come to creating floating designs with ease. I could easily cut the full graphic flower from the middle of a piece of card, place acetate underneath and slot a separate die cut graphic flower in the aperture created from the first die cut.
- I adopted the 'gallon, quart, pint' design princple for this design. A good amount of pink, slightly less green and even less blue. It helps to balance the design.
Thanks so much for hippety hopping by today!
