Hello, Gaylynn here. Hand cut card detail adds interest and a different look to card making. Today, on the Unity blog, I am sharing a way to hand cut a card front to be used as a dimensional card border.
This is a hand cut card with an added watercolor floral border. It offers a clean and simple look plus a peek at the inside sentiment.
Sentiment: Hey girl!
Here are helpful tips for making this slanted diagonal hand cut card. To begin, cut and score an A2 card base. Also, cut an inside panel using color cardstock. Next, stamp the sentiment in the top right order of the inside panel. Also, using waterproof ink, stamp the flowers and the leaves onto watercolor paper. Then, watercolor the flowers and leaves. Next, once dry, fussy cut (cut out) the flowers and the leaves and add foam tape to the back of each. Now, using a paper trimmer or scissors, cut a diagonal from the card front, horizontally. For this example, I cut at about 1″ from the bottom right up to 1″ from the top left score line. Finally, assemble the floral border to the edge of the white diagonal flap and then add the inside panel to finish the card.
Here is another look.
Here is my video tutorial for this project. It will detail the full process.
