A Return to Die-Cutting

Hello Papermilldirect fans, Barbara here with a tutorial for a very simple, pretty card, using mainly die-cutting. (Details of products used at end of post)

To start, I die-cut a white base, frame, and a flourish background from white 'hopsack' card stock. I love the texture of hopsack card for mainly all-white cards.

I mounted the pretty, flourish panel onto the base, then adhered the frame over the top.

Next I die-cut a very well-loved poppy image and coloured it pink & green, with inks.

I stamped and heat-embossed a small sentiment onto black card, then adhered to the card, tucking it under the poppy stem.


A few sequins finished off the topper.......the whole piece was then adhered to a black card base.

I love black and white cards, with just a pop of colour, they look so elegant.Hope you like this (very simple) project as much as I do......

Any queries, just ask.

Back soon,

Barbara x
