Die Cut Valentine - 2 Ways!Posted on Feb 5, 2020 9:09:43 AM by Samantha Taylor
Made by: Samantha Taylor
Time: 20 minutes
Size: 4 ¼” x 5 ½”
Nothing says Valentine’s Day like a handmade card. Below, you will find two versions of the same die cut
valentine, one with glitter and one without. Both cards utilize Glue Dots® Permanent Adhesive Sheets with
a die cutting machine. You are going to love how easy it is to cut and adhere even the daintiest of cuts
with the new Adhesive Sheets!
- Glue Dots® Permanent Adhesive Sheets for Die Cutting
- Glue Dots Premium Permanent Glue Tape®
- Red Cardstock
- White Cardstock
- Ultra-Fine Glitter
- Die Cutting Machine (I used a Silhouette Cameo)
- Cut files 54860 and 1804553 or similar from the Silhouette Design Store
- Cut a piece of white cardstock to 8 ½” x 5 ½”. Fold in half to create your card base.
- Cut a piece of red cardstock to 4” x 5 ¼”.
- For the glitter-free version of this card, proceed to step 3.
- For the glitter version, cut a sheet of Adhesive Sheets for Die Cutting to 4” x 5 ¼”.
- Place the adhesive sheet onto the red cardstock and peel off the liner.
- Cover your red cardstock in glitter. Shake any loose/extra glitter off. The red cardstock should now be completely covered in glitter.
- Apply an adhesive sheet to an 8 ½” x 11” piece of white cardstock. Size your cutting file to 4” x 5 ¼”. Run the paper through your die cutting machine to cut your card front (you can fit 4 card fronts on one sheet of white cardstock).
- Peel off the liner. If you peel slowly, the liner will do most of the weeding for you.
- Gently layer your die cut piece onto the red cardstock (either with glitter or without).
- Use Permanent Glue Tape® to attach the red cardstock to your card base.
This is a great assembly-line style project if you need many of the same card. Your machine can cut up to 4 card fronts at a time while you cut and fold a stack of card bases and red layering pieces of cardstock. Switch up your layering cardstock colors (pink, purple, blue) to vary the design a bit without any added work.
I like to work with Glue Dots Glue Tape® when assembling cards, but Ultra Thin or Craft Glue Dots® will work well for this project, too.
Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!
