Die-cutting Essentials issue 47 BONUS card project

Well, it might be January, but we’re always in the spirit of giving at Die-cutting Essentials.

Issue 47 is out on Thursday January 17th, and ahead of it, we’ve got a sneaky peek of loads of projects you’ll love.

There are stunning cards using the Hello Spring die gift from Sue Hughes – perfect for posting!

Or what about Jo Kill’s Washi-tape makes with the gift – easy for you to replicate with her brilliant instructions.

There are also off-the-page makes from Cricut and Helen Griffin, and new releases from Crafter’s Companion and Joanna Sheen.

But our generosity for this post is all about the striking Altenew makes from Jeanne Jachna. She’s used the dies to boost some beautiful backgrounds, and thanks to her, we have a bonus card to feature right here for you.

It’s a glitter version of the Have A Beautiful Day make from the feature in issue 47, so we hope you’re sparkling by the time you’ve made it!

1 Apply packing tape to the back of a panel of white cardstock, then cut with the Altenew Layered Blossom die. The packing tape will prevent the die from cutting all the way through the panel, providing you with an outline of the die on a cardstock panel.

2 Using the die-cut lines as a guide, colour exposed areas with markers.

3 Trim a 4 x 5.25” panel of double sided adhesive and adhere to the colored cardstock panel.

4 Die-cut the Altenew Layered Blossom Cover Die A  from white cardstock and adhere to the coloured panel.

5 Pour crystal ultra fine glitter over the entire panel filling in all the exposed sticky openings.

6 Adhere the joined panel to the card blank, then stamp the sentiment in blank and die-cut with in a fishtail.

7 Adhere the sentiment and gold enamel dots as shown to finish.

We hope you love this card as much as we do! Check out the rest of Jeanne’s makes in the new issue out on January 17th.

Happy die-cutting!
