Diecuts and Foam

Use Foam with Your Dies to Create a 3D Look

Create a 3d look without using foam tape which often leave you with uneven areas.  Simply cut 4 layers with actual foam with your die. This will give your die cut a feel of being a chipboard piece and lay on your cards evenly.


Directions:

Use foam in a similar color to the actual patterned paper color.  This will give the die cut more depth.  If you use foam in a opposite color this will be more visible.  Using a matching color or darker color allows the die cut piece to blend more and give you a more seamless look.  Cute 4 layers of foam and adhere them on top of each other.  Once you achieve the desired height adhere the die cut in the patterned paper as seen below.


Next to give your die added depth ink the actual die with your dauber in your chosen color before running it through the die cut machine this will color the die seamlessly.  Below you can see how the die pops off the page with no gaps and has a seamless even look.


To make the flowers you will use 1 large and 2 medium cuts for each of the full flowers and for the small flowers.  Use 1 die cut.  Take your flower molding tool and shape the flowers.  Once complete add glue to the edges and then sprinkle with crystal glitter to add sparkle to your completed flowers.

I am confused on the step when you explain die cutting the foam. You wrote that we should cut out 4 layers of foam. It was unclear whether the border (which you said to ink up with a dauber) was what we should pop up or if it was the middle piece or both. I couldn't tell from the pictures.
