Folksy Die Cutting

Hello Friends!

Today I created a card using the new Simon Says Stamp Folk Dance die cut.  It’s a full back ground die cut and I had so many ideas as soon as I saw it.  I love the Nordic look to the flowers.

Folk Die

I started by cutting out the die with plain white cardstock.  I kept the cut pieces in the die cut and flipped the entire piece over.

Adding Foam Adhesive

I added 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Adhesive on the entire back of the card panel.  It kept the pieces in place while I colored them.  I could then peel the backing off when I am ready to add to a cardbase.

Once all the foam tape was added, I flipped the panel over and started coloring with my Copics.  It was very sloppy coloring, I did not worry about staying in the lines.

Copic coloring

I used Y13 and Y17 for the center of the flowers and the dots above the pink flowers.  For the leaves and the stems, I used G28, YG17 and YG03.  For the blue flowers, I used B02 and B16.  For the pink flowers, I used RV55, RV19 and RV66.  I used R29 for the red berries.

Finished coloring

As you can see, I was not careful with my coloring.  I knew I was going to be covering this up.  I used Bazzil navy blue cardstock for the background cover.  I cut it with the Folk Dance Die as well.  I used my Zig glue pen to attach the cardstock cover over the colored background.

I stamped a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Take Heart stamp set with Versamark ink on Vellum and embossed it with Wow white embossing powder. I cut down the sentiment and attached it to the card panel.  I felt like it didn’t need anything else so I called it a day.


I also made a version using yellows instead of pink for the flowers.  I am really happy with how these turned out.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I can’t believe it is August!
