I want to share is this Card I made using the QUICKUTZ DOLLS REV-0193-D. I used the dolls die for the doll and also used the dolls body to make the tulips.
I have used this example as I have been asked how I make my die cuts if the back sides of them are visible. You will see in my pictures that the Tulips go off the edge of the card and will be visible from the back, so I have cut the die cuts out twice, stuck them back to back and decorated them before I attached them to the card. How you decorate the back will depend on what die cut you are using. For example if you want to use the Doll so that it shows the front & back you will cut the face twice- one in beige and one in black so that the black side looks like hair on the back of the head.
The bottom picture is a view of the card lying flat and also a close up view showing the back of the die cuts.
To make this card I also used the CUTTLEBUG EMBOSSING FOLDER – FLORAL SCREEN to emboss my cardstock before I started.
I then cut out the QUICKUTZ FLOWER REV-0034 die and embossed it with the same CuttleBug embossing folder and attached it to the bottom of my card, making sure that just over half of the flower can be seen. The top section of the flower is glued to the inside front cover of the card. I have cut this flower out twice, the second one in black to stick back to back with the white flower so that when you open the card all you see is a large black flower. All the glue, tape etc that you used to attach the flower to the card is hidden between the 2 layers of the flower.
The bowl is cut from the SIZZIX Fish & Fishbowl die, Stems are cut with the wavy blade from my paper trimmer, and the words on the front of the bowl which read ‘Harmony’ are cut from the QUICKUTZ HARMONY die. I inked my die cuts with TIM HOLTZ DISTRESSED INK and used KAISERCRAFT RHINESTONES for the front of the dolls dress and her hair bow.
Once everything is attached, fold the flowery flap at the bottom upwards and it turns that section of your card into a doily / stand.
