MIM#200 - Layering Cover Plate Die Cuts

Good morning friends.  Playing along with PTI's Make it Monday challenge today, and I'm still on a pink and black kick (see yesterday's post here )!  Dawn McVey shows us how to layer our cover plate dies, and since I only have one cover plate die, my choice was easy!  I really like how it turned out though...take a look:



I simply cut out my chevron cover plate twice with pink & black card stock and layered them onto a white card base.  Love how just that little bit of black peeking out behind the pink  really makes a bold background!  My heart is from the Limitless Layers: Hearts dies, and I stamped with Versamark the small leaves and flower from the Embroidered Blooms stamp set and then embossed them with white embossing powder.  I added the "love" die from the Wet Paint set, and embossed the "you" also with white embossing powder on a scrap of black card stock.  A dyed seam binding ribbon, silver cording, a black enamel dot, and a couple silver dots finished the heart, along with a little bit of silver embossing around the scalloped edges of the heart.  This was one of those cards that came together so easily and just how I pictured it in my head...don't ya just love it when that happens?!! :0)

You can check out Dawn's great video and card, and all the info you need to play along over on Nichole's blog right here .  This is Papertrey Ink's 200th Make it Monday video, so that means almost 4 years of video inspiration every week!  I love Make it Monday's and have learned SO much over the past 2 years that I have been playing along...thank you PTI!!!! :0)

Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a wonderful Wednesday!

  3. That technique looks wonderful in your pink and black! I'm glad you had a cover plate so you could play, I don't have one (yet).

  6. Eek! We used the same cover plate--great minds think alike. Love your take. The black with pale pink is so striking, and I just love the heart shaped focal point you made.
