How to Make 2 Fabulous Decorative Edge Cards + Video!

Did you know that you can use co-ordinating dies for more than just ‘cutting out’ an image? Today I share 2 ways to use them to which really gives them an edge…..

Welcome back to another Take 2 With Therese, this is my video series for Altenew and if you missed any of my previous videos you can check them out right HERE.

This big beautiful bunch of flowers from the Statement Flowers Bundle and is perfect for this technique, but you may also have other stamps and dies that could work with this idea too!

I wanted to show that this could be used in either a ‘landscape’ or portrait’ style card, starting with some Artist Marker brightly coloured blooms.

The sentiment is a combination of the Gradient Stripes Stamp Set and the Bold Thanks Die.

Both cards got a spattering of Ink Spray….

My second design is the portrait style and this sentiment is from the Hello and Hugs Bundle.

I added a few enamel dots,

as well as some design paper to both from the Essential Black & White Paper Pack.

  1. These are gorgeous…. love the colors, the layouts, the technique! Can’t wait to give it a try. Thanks for another helpful video and all your inspiration!

  2. Both of your cards are beautiful, Therese! I love the style of coloring that you did, but find it so hard to refrain from doing more blending. As I said, I love it though, so thanks for the inspiration! The black and white patterned paper is wonderful with your bold blooms!

  3. How stunning, Therese… I’m off to get a cuppa, then settle in to watch your video. I am sure it will jump start my card-making today. πŸ™‚ Thank you x

  4. Brilliant cards! The large amount of white seems to make everything else pop. You make that colouring seem effortless. I like the colour- blended sentiment too. Perfect stamp for this technique.

  5. You do gorgeous so beautifully, Therese! Both stunners … the bold, bright colour is fantastic with the black and white … love the loose look on the flowers … they have a real organic look! Hugs, Anita πŸ™‚
