While surfing the Internet for inspiration, I found some amazing cards with die cut flowers and butterflies. The unusual part was the way the artist didn’t completely cut out the shape, but left it attached to pop out of the card.
With both of these actions, be sure to follow the directions for installing all of the components (the Punch Out Action comes with a style that you will need).
Here are the steps that I used to create the die cut card:
Step 1: Place on your layout the paper that you want to cut the shape out of and place the shapes that you want to cut out (which I will refer to as the Original Layout).
Step 3: Your first set of directions will be “Hit STOP and drag an embellishment, paper or whatever you what to punch the shape out of. Make sure that layer is selected and then hit PLAY.” I actually went to my Original Layout and duplicated the paper layer onto the Action Layout. Then hit Play on the Actions Palette.
Step 4: Your next set of directions will be “Now add a shape or embellishment to ‘cut out’ of the Punch Out Layer, move to desired location and make sure the ‘Cut Out’ layer is selected.” I went back to my Original Layout and duplicated both flower shapes onto the Action Layout. Then I merged the flower layers on the Action Layout so there was only one layer for the action to work on.
Step 8: Embellish your layout and share your creation with us in the Scrap Girls Gallery.
