String Theory Technique

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!  Thanks for stopping by to see the card I created using the String Theory Technique.  Have you ever tried this technique?  I had not heard of it until it was posted on Splitcoaststampers as a Technique Lovers Challenge.  It is an awesome and fun technique, and one that I could play with all day as different effects can be achieved.

Luke 1:34-37 (NIV)

” “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a Virgin?”  The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you.  So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.  Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be barren is in her sixth month.  For nothing is impossible with God.” “

Layered Die Cuts Technique – Guneaux Designs

Welcome to Guneaux Designs, and thanks for stopping by to see my card share today that showcases a Layered Die Cuts Technique.  This technique can be somewhat time consuming; however, it depends on the die you use.  This is my card using the Layered Die Cuts Technique.


The Layered Die Cuts Technique entails the use of the cut outs from a die.  For my card, I use a Neat & Tangled Scalloped Cover Plate Die and cut out the pieces from white card stock and multiple colors of card stock.

I laid the white die cut over a white panel and temporarily attached them together.  Then I began adhering the colored card stock cut outs in the appropriate spaces.  I glued a second layer of cut outs on each row.  Three or more layers would be best for dimension.  This would be easier to accomplish with a less-involved die.

To finish the card, I added various colors of sequins and a “grateful” sentiment that I cut from a piece of hologram paper that was adhered to a piece of foam.  The bottom three rows are covered with embossing accents.

I added the colorful panel to a turquoise card base using foam adhesive.

What are your thoughts about the card?
