Die Cut Letter Cards – See Why I LOVE Making Them!
Before we get into the details of these stinkin' cute die cut letter cards, I just have to say there is nothing like versatile supplies. Like NOTHING!!! I love supplies that give me freedom and options like I love my sock drawer – but that's a whole other topic! I love them because you can invest some money, but then the sky is the limit. That's what I get from these fabulously useful letter dies. Take a peek at today's version:
This is a small alphabet die set that you can use for any, and I mean any, type of card. You can mix it with stamps and patterned paper, make it work with any ribbon or other texture. You can mix up the colors like I did here, use patterned paper, metallic paper, cork sheets, etc. Anything you can cut in your die cut machine just became a “word”!
And… and this is a big one… it's the best set of dies to USE UP SCRAPS! So it's got the whole trifecta of awesomeness, the hat trick of stamping, the yaya cuz yaya is just fun to say – all in one! These letters are small enough to be able to spell out a word but large enough that they can play center stage. Did I mention I love them?
The Making of These Die Cut Letter Cards
Before we begin, there is one step of all of these that is most important. I mean it – don't go all trying to reinvent the wheel on this one – I tried it several ways and I am here to tell you, if you want to keep your card stock out of your trash – don't skip or dance around this step. It's so important that we are going to start with it and it IS one of my all time favorite PRO TIPS.
- Add adhesive sheets to the back side of your card stock – for me I used Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry. Cut a 1″ strip of your adhesive sheet and add it to the back of strips of both colors. This gives you INSTANT letter stickers, actually SAVES on adhesive because you can place them close together and saves so much time you won't even know what to do with yourself. Maybe make another card?
- Die cut all as many letters as you can in one pass through your die cutting machine.
- Stamp Happy at the top of your Whisper White rectangle – that happy comes from a birthday set – another very versatile item listed in the supplies.
- Lay out your lettering to get your spacing. Then one at a time, removing your backing of your adhesive sheet and add to your card.
- Take a drink, you earned it!
- Layer this onto a piece of black card stock, cut with your Trimmer, and adhere using Stampin' Dimensionals.
- Use your layers to help get your placement of your cobweb stamps and stamp them in black ink onto Whisper White that is 4″ x 5-1/4″.
- Use the versatile Right Triangle stamp set for the cute little dots, stamping then over the webs in Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry ink.
- Secure your sentiment layer onto your card front.
- Adhere all of this papercrafting goodness onto your Pumpkin Pie card base and you are done!

Also, if you don't get your tutorials, make sure in your Stampin Up store profile that you haven't selected the option to not allow the demonstrator to contact you. If that is checked, even if you use the code, I can't see your name/email, nuttin' – so I don't know where to send your tutorials.
