Creating Shaped Cards with Dies {Avery Elle}

Hello friends, 

I am up on the Avery Elle blog today with a sweet card to share with you featuring the new Windmill stamp set along with the Large Pierced Scallops Dies.  A linked list of all the Avery Elle products used in my card is at the end of the post. 

The Large Pierced Scalloped dies are wonderful as a layer on a rectangle A-2 card, but I used the largest rectangle die to create a shaped card base.  To create the shaped card base, I started with a top fold A-2 card.  Next I positioned the largest die on over the card base so that the top fold would not be cut by the die.  I ran the card and die through the die cut machine and created the shaped card base.

Next, I create the front of the card by cutting a panel of white card stock and a panel of green card stock with the largest scalloped die.  With  an ink brush, I created the soft yellow background and I used the Dotted Borders Elle-ments die to create the slopes in the hills.

Finally, I stamped the images from the Windmill stamp set onto white card stock and colored them in using Copic Markers. I die cut the images and adhered them to the card front before adhering the card front to the scalloped card base. 

I love this little scene- with all the flowers and bugs, it's like a breath of spring as the weather is turning colder!

Thanks for stopping by!
