Papertrey Ink | Throwback Thursday – Delicate Details Die Collection

Hey there! Happy New Year! In 2018, I want to do more crafting and blog about it. So, here’s my first post. I am substituting for another Papertrey Ink design team member for this week’s Throwback Thursday post. Lucky me, right?! This week, Papertrey Ink wants you to take out your Delicate Details die collection. Remember that one, introduced in May 2014. These dies are designed with intricate details that allow you to layer them or use them in a single layer.

CONFESSION: I’m really late on sending a wedding card, so I knew Delicate Details dies would be the perfect product to use to inspire me to make a soft and beautiful card for newlyweds.

I chose to work with the largest die in the collection to create a textured background on my card front. To me, it resembles lace.

I die cut the largest die three times from white cardstock. I adhered one to the center of a 4.25″ x 5.5″ card front. For the adhesive, I used Scrappy Glue by squeezing tiny dots to the back of the die cut.

I used the second die cut to cover the left and right corners of the card front. I added some adhesive to opposing corners of the die cut, adhered it to the card front, then trimmed off the excess die cut using scissors.

I repeated this process to the bottom left and right corners of the card front to finish the “lace pattern.”

To add my sentiment, I used Huge Sentiments along with Huge Congrats die. I die cut the drop shadow Congrats in pure poppy cardstock and the detailed Congrats in white cardstock and adhered them together.

Next, I stamped “On Your Wedding Day” onto a banner die cut.

To complete the card, I stamped some flowers and leaves onto their coordinating die cuts from the Farmer’s Market Florals collection.

So, don’t forget to use your Delicate Details die collection for your delicate projects. And as a tip, don’t forget that intricate designed dies such as this one may require a tighter sandwich for your die cutting machine. I use a few sheets of folded printer paper to get my sandwich tight enough. To remove all the negative die cut pieces, I use a piercer tool to poke them all out. Does it take a little time? Yes! Is it worth it? Yes!

Thanks for stopping by to see my card. I hope to be back soon with more to share on my blog.
