I’m thrilled to share S4-296 Nested Hearts die templates with you!
Here is the S4-296 Nested Hearts die template set. I place a quarter in the image to show the scale of the die templates.Here is a picture of the card I created using the S4-296 Nested Hearts die template set along with a step-by-step tutorial.
The next step will be to create a sandwich to emboss: White Master Mat, S4-296 Nested Hearts with the paper, Tan Embossing Mat and another White Mater Mat. Feed the sandwich through the Wizard™ to emboss. Once the largest heart has been cut/embossed the next step is to airbrush. Leave the paper in place and airbrush through the die template. For the first color I used Copic marker E15 Dark Suntan.Then I airbrushed the edges of the flourishes using Copic marker 100 Black. I created a mat for the largest heart diecut by placing the die template face up and using a stylus to trace around the die template. I am using Copper Foil Engraving Art paper for this step so the stylus works really good. For cardstock I would use a pencil to trace around the die template. Then I hand cut the shape with a scissors. Lightly sand the edges of the Engraving Art Foil to reveal the copper.Next I did the Reverse Stencil technique for the medium heart from the S4-296 Nested Hearts die templates. To do the reverse stencil, have the die template with the ridges facing up and ink the inside of the die template. Then cut/emboss as usual.
