Easy clean and simple card – simple die-cutting!

If you struggle to make an easy clean and simple card, then pair it right back down with just one die! The trick, use colour to make a striking and stunning graphic card! The new Angled Strips Cover Plate die from the Catherine Pooler designs Put It in Ink bundle is perfect for creating a bold graphic card. You can easily change up the colour scheme if you’re not into rainbows – think about ombre or gradient colours schemes!

easy clean and simple card: creating a rainbow

Start off by die-cutting the Angled Strips Cover Plate die from white cardstock. Next, take each strip in turn and colour with an ink pad using the direct to paper method. 

The colours uses are from the Date Night Ink collection:

To create the background panel, add these to a panel trimmed down by 1/2 smaller than your card base and adhere with foam tape. For added interest, separate the strips out to add more to the design. 

Add Your Heading Text Here

To assemble the card, add your background panel to a white card base. To add to the graphic design, die-cut the Favorite on a line die out of black card and adhere to the front. In addition, heat emboss in white onto black card a smaller sentiment from the Favorite Day Ever stamp set

Add the smaller sentiment with foam tape and then embellish with Morning Dew Nuvo drops
