Hello and thanks for stopping by....
I used 5 different shades of blue card to create this partial die cutting technique, starting with a pale blue through to a deeper blue
My white base card is a 12.5cm x 11cm , top folding. I placed my first layer of card onto the the base card and marked where the sentiment die needed to be
I removed the die and cut each of the 5 cards in half
I then placed the die onto the card ensuring the bottom part of it was hanging over the card. I then placed the second card under the top card, secured it in place with tape and die cut the image
Once die cut I removed the die and die cuts from the first layer leaving the second layer with an embossed image of the sentiment. I then slotted the die into the embossed image and added the next colour card under the embossed one, die cut it and repeated the process until all 5 layers were die cut.
I did the same for the bottom half ensuring the top of the die was clear from the card stock
I then die cut the whole of the sentiment in each colour and glued each layer together
Both the top and bottom of the card were glued together, ensuring each layer was slightly overlapped to give a shadow affect of all the colours
I added fun foam to the back of both top and bottom layers, adhered the sentiment onto the card base then adhered both layered cards in place
I have seen this technique before and this is my 'take' on it
