Ivory and Gold Card Step Outs

To start, I  selected an ivory card base, matted gold mirror card, and a patterned card. Secure the layers with MyStik Permanent Strips Dispenser. This dispenser has a unique fold-away design, ideal for traveling to crops and bonus: you can personalize the dispenser too.

One of my favorite things to do with die cuts is to create a drop shadow with mirror card. This is easily achieved with Adhesive Sheets because they come in a range of sizes.  By placing your chosen card inside and running through a die cutting machine it applies a perfectly thin layer of adhesive.

To achieve a drop shadow effect, affixed to your second die cut slightly off center.

Tip: cut 3D Foam Squares White Small in half so they fit neatly on the back of your die cuts.

The middle die cut piece will be affixed with Crafty Power Tape. The backing easily pulls away and gives a secure hold on the card front!

Die-cut and assemble a pretty flower and leaf embellishment. Stamp sentiment on an oval die cut and tie a ribbon bow. Secure all with 3D Foam Squares White Small for dimension and interest.
