I am on the Pink and Main Blog today with a fun die cut shape window card featuring the newly released Perfect Couple stamps and coordinating dies. This simple technique will show you how to get more use out of your coordinating dies.
I started with a piece of heavy weight white cardstock which I die cut with the largest Arch Tag die. I placed the coordinating die of the bear couple in the middle of it and ran it through my die cutting machine again. I also die cut the word Congrats from Rose Gold metallic cardstock and adhered it under the die cut shape window. Then I stamped the rest of the sentiment (from the Perfect Couple stamp set) under it using black ink.
On a piece of alcohol marker friendly cardstock I stamped the bear couple and colored them with Copic markers. I used 3D foam tape to adhere this piece behind the die cut window and mounted the tag on a pretty patterned paper from the Watercolor Foil paper pad. I added it all to a white top folding card base.
As a finishing touch I added a bit of glossy accents to the crowns and noses and ran a light pink marker around the edges of the die cut window. Thanks to the embossed edge it was easy to make the frame even. I Love the way it looks! Finally I embellished the top of the card with die cut Rose Gold hearts (also a coordinating die in the Perfect Couple set).
I hope you got inspired and will try this simple technique with your coordinating dies. Until next time, happy crafting!
