Layering Die Cuts With Patterned Paper | Altenew Doodle Flowers | Papers For You

Hey Crafty People!

I’ve had so much fun playing with the gorgeous papers which are part of the Boho Wedding collection from Papers For You, along with the doodle flowers layering die set from Altenew!

I just started by cutting a whole BUNCH of both layers for the three flowers included in the set from several of the patterned papers.

In order to balance out the busy papers, I also cut a whole bunch of the flowers from various single colour cardstocks, metallic paper, glitterstock and I layered them so that each flower had one layer of patterned paper and the other layer of a solid colour. Once I was happy with them all I used Nuvo Deluxe adhesive to glue them together; putting them under something to keep the pressure and contact, to allow for the best adherence. (Especially where something is being glued down onto glitter paper for example.

I cut two panels down to be 4×5.25inch, one deep maroon, one navy blue. I laid out an arrangement of flowers to go down the edges of each panel, but I did decide to make each panel have the images on the opposite side. (It looks better in the photos that way ???).

I made these two cards with my beautiful flowers, along with still having a boat load left to use on other creations!

Pro tip! For much more aesthetically pleasing flowers, give them a little depth with some really light grey shadows at the base of every petal. You will honestly be blown away by just how much difference it makes to your final project!!!

Once I was happy with placement, I use some heffy doodle memo tape to run the length of the flowers, allowing me to lift it as one piece, add glue and foam adhesive, then adhere it to my card panel, without losing the setup that I was happy with!

I like the look of the panels being offset on the white card base, with the flowers & leaves going over onto the white space.

I used the sentiment strips die set from Altenew to cut my sentiment from the same blue or maroon cardstock, then stuck that onto some of the patterned paper that was pale and light enough to be easily read.

I finished both designs with a variety of gorgeous sequins from a Catherine Pooler mix.
