Adding multiple colours with cover plate dies

This Peppermint Twist cover plate die from Catherine Pooler Designs was released in the recent Christmas Holiday release. But today I’m showing you how a Christmas die isn’t just for Christmas! By adding multiple colours with cover plate dies you can easily switch up the vibe of the die and use it in a completely different way. This card created a fun and vibrant card by adding pops over colour beneath the die. So let’s get started!

Adding multiple colours with cover plate dies

Creating a rainbow of colours

Start off by die-cutting the Catherine Pooler Peppermint Twist Cover Plate Die out of white card stock and put this to one side. Next trim 8 strips of white card stock to 3/4 inch wide 

Use direct to the paper method, colour each of these strips with Catherine Pooler inks by swiping the ink pad directly across the cardstock. The colours used in this card are Samba, Orange Twist, Limoncello, Garden Party, Mardi Gras, Suede Shoes, Queen for a Day and Sangria. 

Adding multiple colours with cover plate dies

To add the colour behind the die, use liquid adhesive on the back of the die-cut. Next adhere the coloured strips of card diagonally across the back, lining the colours up with the design. In addition, add a few of the white Peppermint Twist die-cut inners onto the background, foam mount them for dimension. 

For the sentiment, die-cut and layer up 3 times the ‘Thanks’ from the Catherine Pooler Happy Thanks Word die out of black card stock and add to the front of the card. Stamp and heat emboss a sentiment from the One Liner stamp set in white onto black card and foam mount onto the front. 

Lastly, embellish with a few cards to finish the card off.
