I am excited to two ways on stretching a cover die set. Thanks to the ease and efficiency, cover dies are the go-to items for die-hard crafters. Cover dies, however, are not just for the cover! They can be used in SO many creative ways beyond the cover. Today's post is help you look at your cover dies beyond the usual ways. Let's dive in! The Peeking Leaves Cover Die is one that can be overlooked by its versatility.

For this card, I cut up the entire die and split it in two parts. Thanks the the frame die, the design looks cohesive and interesting. I started out with inking the die cut Peeking Leaves Cover Die.

The Wildflower Garden (Add-on) Stamp & Die Bundle was perfect for the grounded images. I stamped the flowers in Pink Pearl, Coral Bliss , Warm Sunshine and Velvet.

 Once I had the vision in my mind, I secured the cover die and Wildflower Garden (Add-on) Stamp and Die with 2 in 1 Precision Glue.

I then splatter a few droplets of green and stamped the sentiment. It is quite a transformation, right? Wait...that's not all. Next card will make you do a double take!

If you guessed that I die cut two pieces of  Peeking Leaves Cover Die, then you are correct. I simply trimmed off the frame (without the leave side), joined and put the two together. You get a very different look from the original cover die.

 To add the focal point (and also cover up the joint section), I stamped Wispy Joy Stamp & Die Bundle in Vanilla Cream, Butternut and Snapedragon.  I then added the new One-go Birthday Greetings as the sentiment.  The color combo is based on this month's Inspiration Challenge. Isn't that cool?

 One thing I'd like to point out is that the Metallic Cardstock diecut really well with intricate dies like Peeking Leaves Cover Die. Lastly, I embellished the card with Warm and Cozy Enamel Dots.
