How to use Triptych Dies for triple the cardmaking creativity

Crafter's Companion – 17/09/21

Throw open the windows of your cardmaking creativity and take new inspiration from the innovative new Triptych Dies from Gemini!

Each die creates a trio of beautiful arched windows to show a stunning panorama. Perfect for Christmas, birthday and every day and they’re so easy to use. Read on to find out how…

What does tryptich mean?

The term ‘triptych’ has its roots in Greek and comes from the word triptychos which means ‘having three folds’. Over the years it has come to mean something composed or presented in three parts or sections. This can relate three related parts in art, music or even literature.

What is a Triptych Die?

Gemini’s new collection of Triptych Dies is designed to create a trio of beautiful windows with a scene inside.

The dies have a cut-in ability so your design is integrated immediately into your card to create a see-through set of three windows.

Each set features an intricate and delicate setting, with three ornate windows and stunningly detailed scenery and characters.

How to use Triptych Dies

These dies create beautiful, versatile and professional looking card designs. And, they’re very easy to use!

Each set includes 3 dies, one for each window. The dies cut directly into landscape 5” x 7” card blanks to create a trio of windows.

They’re guaranteed to impress friends and family and they’re so straightforward to create! 

Simply lay your dies in your chosen combination and create your plate combination using the helpful Sandwich Guide in the instruction manual. Run through your die-cutting machine and voila – it’s that simple!

Layer your Gemini Triptych Die creation with vellum, coloured cardstock or acetate to form additional depth and dimension.
