Hi friends! Today I’ve got a really quick and easy card featuring The Stamp Market Modern Motif die. (If you missed the first one, you can find it here.) This design wasn’t one I actually intended to make at first, but I had some leftover cardstock scraps after a previous crafting session and knew they’d be perfect for this.
Cover dies can be somewhat expensive, so when I buy them, I always ask myself if it’s one that can be used over and over, season to season. This die absolutely is one of those. Colour palette-wise, I’m always drawn to teals and purples, and perhaps it’s because I’m a lover of tropical plants and succulents, no matter what time of year! After cutting out my Modern Motif panel from heavyweight cardstock, I covered off diagonal rows with scraps in 6 different colours.
For my heat embossed sentiment, I used a stamp from the Lovely Little Notes stamp set. This set is designed to perfectly fit mini 3×3″ cards (which are super cute!), but obviously works for all sorts of card sizes. After that was complete, it was time for…. foam adhesive, of course! In fact, prior to making this card I was running dangerously low on this, but have no fear because a restock has arrived and yours truly is back in business. I used my go-to skinny foam strips to add some dimension behind both the cover panel and sentiment, placing plenty of little bits around the edges so that the card could easily slide into an envelope.
And that’s all it took! Now that I’m working on mostly holiday cards, I’m definitely planning to pair this die with holiday-inspired colour palettes. I’d love to know, do you have a go-to cover die that you use for cards with many different themes?
