Copic Coloured Die-cut Florals

Do you love to use die cuts on your cards, but want to stretch how you use them and get more from them? Adding colour detail with your Copic markers, or any other alcohol marker is a quick way to change up your regular die cuts from plain cardstock and make your card stand out, creating quick and easy Copic coloured die-cut florals. What’s more, you can use a layering floral die such as this layered rose die from Altenew and use the layers independently to stretch your design.

The Altenew Layered rose die comes with 3 floral layers and 3 leaf layers, which you can layer up to have a bold coloured outline or only use two layers for a more freestyle look. However, to begin with I’m using the Gradient Lines cover die from Altenew to create a dry embossed background. This is a technique I love but often forget about and after taking the Easy die cutting technique class on Altenew Academy and I wanted to revisit it with this card.

Written process

Copic Coloured Die-cut florals

To begin with use the Gradient Lines cover die from Altenew to create a dry embossed background. Tape the cover-die to a piece of fog cardstock by Lawn Fawn, cut to a card panel size. You need to run this through your die cutting machine with an embossing mat and the sandwich setup according to your machine for dry embossing. 

To create the colour floral die cuts, tape the dies down onto a piece of Neenah Classic Crest solar white 80lb cardstock and run this through the machine to cut the shapes out. 

Colouring the die-cuts:

Start off adding a layer of your lightest Copic colour – I used RV02. Next, add a mid-tone colour ( I used RV06) and add this to the middle of the die cut, feathering your strokes outwards. Lastly, add your darkest tone (RV09) in the middle and only feather out slightly. To get a lovely blend on the die-cut, go back with your mid-tone colour and blend out the darker colour and then repeat with the lightest colour, blending between your mid-tone and light colour.  

Repeat this step with the second layer of the rose die. You may find it looks messy to begin with, but when you blend out the colours it can look stunning. In addition, to these two die cuts, colour another rose outline die cut to have three florals on the finished card.

Assembling the card:

To add a bit more interest to the background,  use Gansai Tambi Starry Colours watercolour set to add some fine gold paint splatter. Create a heat embossed sentiment from the Altenew Sketchy floral stamp set. This was heat embossed on a black strip in Metallic gold-rich pale from WOW! Embossing powder but any powder will do.  Lastly, I added a few sequins from Trinity Stamps with Gina K connect glue.

I would love to hear what you think of the project!

I loved creating this card. The easy die-cutting technique class that I took for the Altenew Educator certificate programme pushed me to create a card with more die cut elements then stamps and I love how it turned out. I love the colour combination and how the fog colour complements the modern pop of pink from the florals.
