Hi all! Today I have four card ideas for you featuring the Outline Floral Mom die. This die is fun to work with, especially because of it’s size! It’s perfectly sized for an A2 card.

Gold Die Cut over Watercolor Background
I adhered the watercolor background to a Fog card base and then stamped a greeting from Simon’s Tiny Words Encouragement stamp set on Hero Arts Hero Hues Premium Cardstock in Plum. I used a bit of foam tape to adhere the greeting to the card.
Inner Die Cut Pieces over Watercolor Background
Similar to the first card, I created a watercolorground using one color of Nuvo Shimmer Powder, Violet Brocade. Then I adhered the interior pieces from the gold foil die cutting. The greeting was stamped and adhered using foam tape once again.
Die Cut Inlay Shaker Card
For my third card, I created a simple shaker card. First, I die cut the Outline Floral Mom die out of both white cardstock and Fog cardstock, making sure the die was positioned perfectly on the Fog cardstock since that position is what would be shown on the front of the card.
After the die cutting was complete, I adhered clear acetate to the back of the Fog cardstock piece. Then I turned it over so that it was face side up and inlaid or “puzzle-pieced” the white die cut onto the center area. This created the top area of the shaker card.
To create the dimensional area of the shaker card where the sequins will be, I applied a double layer of foam tape to the back side of the die cut panel (touching the acetate). Then I poured in the Paintbox sequins mix from Little Things by Lucy’s Cards (see many more sequins mixes HERE).
To close up the shaker area, I pressed a card base made out of the same Plum cardstock over the top. This traps the sequins inside and completes the shaker card.
My fourth and final card is very clean and simple. Using the Fog die cut that I cut during the creation of the previous card, I cut off the floral elements using scissors. This left me with a clean and minimal die cut. I adhered it to a Fog card base.
And those are my cards for today! I hope this gives you some inspiration for using large dies. Thanks for stopping by!
