PTI Make It Monday #132: Layered Border Die Cuts

This week Papertrey Ink has a tutorial and challenge hosted by Dawn.  She has shown us how to make a stunning project layering multiple border die cuts.  Dawn made such a beautiful card!  If you would like to check it out for yourself, you can find all the info here.

I had done this technique once before using various scallop punches instead of dies.  So, for this challenge, my first thought was to use my PTI cloud dies.  I know it's not technically a border die, but I think the idea, process, and the resulting look are just the same.  What do you think?

I used a sponge and distress inks to create the rainbow and sky at the top of the card front, then adhered cloud die cuts all the way down the panel.  Lastly, I added a sun die cut out of Harvest Gold card stock.

Inside the card, I included the sentiment from PTI's Movers and Shakers stamp set.  I achieved the rainbow effect by carefully masking.  Not perfect, but it will have to do as I'm not quite brave enough to cut apart my stamps just yet.  :)

Thanks ever so much for stopping by!


  1. I think you're brilliant, and I love thinking outside the box, so this is the cleverest! Unfortunately, I can't get the song 'Somewhere over the rainbow' out of my head! But love your take to the challenge anyway! :)

  2. I think you are very clever! Love the clouds as your border :^)

  3. I did this technique before with the punches too, it is definitely a lot different with the dies. I love your card, so cheery. Love the rainbow stamping!

  4. What a LOVELY card! Fabulous use of the cloud die.

  5. How cute! Love your rainbow card!
