Let’s talk about making handmade cards with dies.

Here’s three words for why I love using dies for my cardmaking.

  • Fast
  • Pretty
  • Versatile

Do you agree?

Making Handmade Cards with Dies like the Dandy Wishes and Curvy Dies from Stampin' Up! is Quick and Easy
Use Your Dies to Make Handmade Cards

I just love to play with black and white in my card making. There is such a punch of non-colour! But boy do they take your breath away!

On today’s card, I paired the Curvy Dies (which will retire at the end of June sadly) with the Dandy Wishes set of dies. Isn’t that curve just a lovely shape? While this is the unembellished version I used, you can see a bit more jazzed up one here.

Let’s see how I made this card. And you know what? It uses surprisingly few supplies!

Making Handmade Cards with Dies

How’d I Make It?

There were a couple steps to making this card.

  1. My first step was to die cut the curved piece from sone Thick Basic White cardstock and glued it onto the front of my Basic Black card base.
  2. Then I die cut two flowers, one black and one white.
  3. I next lined up the white flower on the card so it overlapped both colours and drew very lightly with a pencil where it crossed the curved line.
  4. Then I layered the black one right under the white and cut along the lines.
  5. Lastly I pieced them back together on the card with liquid glue.

I was so happy with the finished card even though there were a few steps to get to it!

Now It’s Your Turn!

I have two challenges for you with today’s card. Try and limit yourself to ONLY black and white in your design. And use a metal die cut to be the main focal point of your card.
