Bunny Teapot Card


I tried something new for the first time ever and purchased this cool sheet by Reddy.  It's called a DieCut print.  All it is is a base image and several punch out diecuts that layer on top of it to create a dimensional effect.  

Here is a view from the side so you can see where I did some of the pop dotting to create a real depth.  Some of the layers I just glued on flat to avoid excessive bulk.  In the photo they don't look much different, but in person they do add  additional detail.


I had fun putting this together.  In the future I would use a thinner pop dot if I could.  

I really wanted to cut a frame around this and pop dot it up, but my measuring skills and math are pretty bad and this image was one of the measurements I had a hard time working with.  Once we get down below 1/4 inch measurements I am easily confused.  

So, I decided to take the easy route and just layer it on top of a patterned paper from My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Happy Go Lucky 6 by 6 paper pad.  I created a Kraft colored card base.  I rounded all the corners on a 1/4 inch setting using my Corner Chomper.

If you want to see what these kits look like you can check them out on this site.  I purchased mine locally at a stamp expo.

I figure if I ever want to I could create this effect myself if I find an image I really like.  It would be VERY time consuming to carefully cut so many small layers, but it could be done.

love your card. i have done some of these Reddy die cuts and I agree that you need thinner die cuts. i have an aunt in Holland in her 70's that will CUT pictures by hand. i prefer the die cuts, cutting by hand is too much work.
can' wait to see more of your fabulous work.

That is so cute, Amber! The dimension of the cuts add so much interest to the image. You crack me up with your measuring skills but I can totally relate!
