If you want to create incredible depth and layered images on your papercraft projects, our Double-Sided Dies are the way to go! With these dies, you only need to do half the work, as they’ve been designed with a time-saving, double-sided concept – cut two pieces of card at once!
If you need convincing about these dies anymore, take a look at this 3D rose Double-Sided Die card. With built up layers to produce a stunning black rose against a sunset sky, this is a project that will totally steal the show.
You will need:
- 14cm x 14cm white card base
- Matt black cardstock
- Circle die
- Rose Double-Sided Die set
- Spectrum Noir Harmony Water Reactive Inkpads in Honeypot, Winter Rose and Plum Pudding
- Ornate Lace Embossing Folder
- Gemini Die-Cutting Machine
- Double-Sided Die Plates
- Collall All Purpose Glue
- 3D Foam Pads
- Red Liner Tape
- Round Blending Tool
Cut two pieces of the matt black cardstock to 13cm x 13cm. Using a circle die, cut out an aperture in the centre of each card.
Take one of your black layers and emboss with the Ornate Lace Embossing Folder.
Using a blending tool and the Water Reactive Inks, blend the three colours on to the centre of the white card base. When you are happy with your blend, flick a little water on to it to create some texture. Pat or let dry.
Die-cut the rose and leaf Double-Sided Dies in the black matt cardstock. Layer up the rose with 3D foam pads.
Adhere a length of ribbon along the left side of the embossed black cardstock using red liner tape. Add a bow.
Adhere the plain black card layer on to the inked base, then layer the embossed card on top with 3D foam pads.
Adhere the rose and leaves along the bottom left of the card, overlapping the aperture.
With the three inks, blend colour on to a piece of white cardstock and use this to die-cut your sentiment. Cut the same die on to a piece of orange cardstock, and layer up both sentiments and adhere to the card as shown.
