Exclusive inspiration using a Crafti Potential die5th July 2018
STRETCH YOUR STASH WITH THIS EXCLUSIVE BONUS IDEA
Issue 179 went on sale last week. And to celebrate we’ve got an exclusive card to show you. Inside issue 179 Claire Gladman used one die set, Crafti Potential Floral Stitched Rectangle die set, to the test by creating five cards using it. Claire was so inspired by the die set she made a sixth card, and we’ve kept it to share it exclusively with you here. Even better, you can buy any of the dies from this range using the 25% discount code printed in the magazine – find out more on page 45

Crafti Potential Floral Stitched Rectangles die set
1 Cover the card front with deep purple cardstock, leaving a narrow border. Die-cut three stitched rectangles from orange, purple and patterned cardstock.
2 Take out the sentiment from the orange rectangle and place double-sided tape on the back over the negative space.
3 Add the sentiment into the gap in the purple panel, then die cut the sentiment from white cardstock and affix on top to add dimension.
4 Take the purple and patterned sentiments, line up on top of one another and cut either side of the sentiment creating two halves of each rectangle.
5 Stick each half either side of the centre sentiment, moving back each time to create a shadow effect. You may need to trim the edges to of the sentiment to keep it tidy.
6 Attach the panel to the card front and add die-cut flowers and leaves from various paper and cardstock.
7 Add a large flower to the corner using 3D foam pads, then secure medium-sized flowers either side of the sentiment to hide the cut lines.
8 Stamp the sentiment onto white cardstock, layer onto coloured cardstock leaving narrow borders and mount onto the card front using 3D foam pads. Add pearls to finish.
