Pump up the Volume with Layered Die Cuts

Today we’re so fortunate to have Laura Bassen with us.


Laura joined us recently as our March Guest Designer and she’s back with us today with a video showcasing her technique for layering die cuts to create depth and dimension while maintaining a firm and well-constructed card (and avoiding the frustration of cutting and adhering tiny pieces of foam tape!)

You will LOVE Laura’s chatty and informative style and without-a-doubt be inspired to try the technique yourself. Watch Laura’s video HERE or below – then, get to cutting!

    You make it look so fun and easy to do. I love using leftovers to save instead of waste. Great hello card! I like the layering for stability idea vs foam 3d dots all the time. Thanks for sharing this with us.

    Brilliant! I’m a foam dotter and yes, you’re right – it’s tedious and aggravating, lol – this is ingenious! Your cards are so colorful and FUN! Love them both :) TSMFS!
