Two Cards With One Cover Die

Hello friends!

It's time to share my projects with you over Altenew Card Blog. This time, I am using Wave Form Cover Die as my main focus. 

To create today's projects, I also used Woven Stripes Stamp and 24 Watercolor Pan Set and Dazzling Diamond Glitter Card-stock. Al products used are linked at the end of this post.

I am delighted to share a simple project with two cards. The Wave Form Cover Die has this artsy look of dripping paint. I took that as my jumping point for inspiration and incorporated watercoloring into my design.

 I started out by painting my own watercolor paper with Artists' Watercolor 24 Pan Set.  It is best to use Watercolor Paper as I applied "Wet on Wet" technique.

With the largest brush (Watercolor Brushes or Artist's Watercolor Brushes-Round), I brushed the paper with water first. I then picked up the mixed paint each time.  This is really the fun and creative part where you can pick all of your favorite colors. You can also use any colors that inspire you.

 Once I finished painting an A2 card size. Let it dry or heat dry.  Then I die cut the piece with Wave Form Cover Die. Next, I took out the Glitter Card Stock (Dazzling Diamond), I now have two sets of dies from Wave Form Cover Die.

 Then it is puzzle time! I assembled the glitter pieces and watercolor pieces and assembled the card. With the leftover pieces, I made another card by adhering it to a pre-cut A2 Card. I stamped the sentiment from Woven Stripes Stamp Set. This is one colorful card and great for anyone who needs some encouragement.

 For my 2nd card, I saved all the pieces from my first card and used You Matter Die Set for the sentiment. As you can see that I glued a thin strip of Gold (Gilded Cardstock Set) and ran the "You" sentiment die through the die cut machine.

 To complement the bright watercolors, I chose a bright Orange Cream Cardstock.

 This is what I love about this die. The lines are so beautiful that you can use any paper that you have on hand to create one-of-a-kind of designs. You can create your own color paper, color card stock or pattern paper. What do you think? I hope that you are inspired and give cover dies like this a try!
