{Spotlight Project} Deepti Makes A Die-cut Only Card

Hello friends! Deepti here and today I made a birthday card with die cuts only. Only thing that I stamped on this card was the sentiment. I combined a cover plate die and balloon die to make my card. Let me show you...


I have shown a step by step photo tutorial to showcase the process of making this ...

Step 1 - I took a white panel and die cut it using the cover plate.

Step 2 - I took another white panel and die cut a few balloons, one being the focal and rest along the edges. I also drew the strings using s ruler and a pen.

Step 3 - I then die cut a white stitched frame and adhered all these together using glue.

Step 4 - Next I picked up a patterned paper. This paper already had a striped pattern, I cut some of it added some other stripes where needed and added that on card base.

Then I added foam adhesive on the back of front panel and adhered it. To finish I stamped the sentiment.
Here is a close up into my card...


That finishes my spotlight feature :) I hope you enjoyed it and will give this a try. Happy paper crafting!


  1. Deepti, this card is delightful. What a great idea to layer those die cuts...the balloons are so unique! tfs-stay well.

  2. What a fun way to create a card with just the dies and love how you layered them up.

  3. Wow, such a clever design with fabulous results!!!!!

  4. Love the way these die cuts are layered to make the fancy balloons! Very clever!

  5. This card is so beautiful! and it gives a chance to use different washi tapes or scraps, so it's just great! Thanks!

  6. I like the idea on how to use the cover to make the balloon designs. Great share.
