Today I am up on the Papermilldirect blog with this card tutorial:
I love die cutting my card and adding them to cards and today I will show you how well Papermilldirect cardstock cuts. I have used different brands in the past and to be honest sometimes the card does not die cut well but Papermilldirect card is a dream to die cut. It also works fantastic on electronic die cutting machines as well as manual.
Today I used one of my favorite Papermilldirect card stock White Card Super Smooth 300gsm. I really recommend stocking up on this card stock its so versatile and I use this on every card I make. It is also fantastic for your copic markers and alcohol markers too.
For this card you will need:
You will also need:
- Stitched detail border dies
- Heart dies
- Die cutting machine
- Animal stamps
- Black ink
- Pearl drops
To make my card base I cut down a piece of White Card Super Smooth 300gsm, which I then trimmed, scored and folded in half. I also used another piece to make the card front and to stamp and colour my images.
With the card front I used a stitched die and run this through my die cutting machine. White Card Super Smooth 300gsm is a super thick card and leaves a lovely crisp stitched detail along the edge. I then stamped my sentiment and die cut a heart with some more White Card Super Smooth 300gsm.
I then added some patterned paper to my card base and trimmed down my front panel and I adhered this onto my base using Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.
I then added my coloured images to the bottom of my card and adhered these down using some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.
I added some twine to the top of the card and added some pearl drops to finish the card off.
If you are a fan of ink blending I have some cards on the Papermilldirect blog using pigment inks and White Card Super Smooth 300gsm as the inks blend beautifully.
Thanks for reading my post and have fun using your dies with Papermilldirect card, you will not be disappointed.
Thank you so much for reading!
