Terrific TuesDIES #6 Cross Card

Hello crafty friends,
Welcome to my 6th Terrific TuesDIES post for Cheapo Dies!  I am super excited to share this card with you. Here it is.

Cheapo Dies Cross Easter Project Card idea
I really love the way this card turned out! It is a 5.5 x 5.5 card size. Not the typical size but still a great size. The card base is white cardstock. The top mat is some Bazzill Bling Lavender and it is 5.5 x 5.5 so you can’t see the white cardstock base.

The featured die is the beautiful and exclusive cross die from Cheapo Dies. I love the beauty of this dies. I cut 3 out in white cardstock and then stacked them to give them some depth. I covered it in some fine glitter to give it that extra special touch. I didn’t think it needed anything else. I then used the scallop stitched oval die set to cut out three ovals in their graduated sizes. I used some more Bazzill Lavender, white and some Bazzill sage green cardstock. I layered them and used some foam tape in between the layers to give them some lift. I then used my Nuvo Jewel Drops Ivory Seashell to add the little pearl accents around the perimeter of each die.

The patterned paper layer is a piece of paper from the Paper Studio Kirby Teesdale pad.

I cut them out of white cardstock and then covered them in the same fine glitter. I added some strips of pearl border to each side. For the sentiment, I used the Scallop Stitched Oval Die to cut it out. I added some foam tape underneath to give it a little lift. I finished off the look by adding a couple of bows from some seam binding ribbon.

Here is one last look at the completed card. I really like the way it turned out and wish I could capture how pretty it is with the glitter.

  1. This just beautiful! I love the dies and your uses. Not thought off cutting out 3 to give depth before so thanks on that. Very pretty paper too. X

  2. Thank you for stopping by and for your kind words my dear crafty friend! Yes, stacking them is a great way to give them some depth and also to make them "firmer" so you can do a bit more with them. <3
