Divinity Designs March 2021 Release

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I am sharing three cards I created using new stamps and dies from Divinity Designs March 2021 Release. This month Divinity Designs are releasing 1 stamp set and 5 die sets, three of these sets have an Easter theme, two of the die sets are slimline related ... the Quatrefoil Background (comes in both A2 & Slimline Size) and the Slimline Z Fold Card with Layers die set.

For more inspiration using products from the new release visit the Divinity Designs blog.

The first card I am sharing here today uses the new Slimline Z Fold Card with Layers die set. Loving Slimline cards as I do I was excited to see this die set in the release. Divinity Designs already has an A2 version, so it is great to see Slimline cards are also going to be featured in the Card dies.

This die set includes 6 dies, the base dies to create the Slimline Z Fold Card Card Base and then 3 dies to cut the layers. If you are decorating every side of the card like I did, you will need to die cut 2 of your diagonal layers from the back to allow for the direction of the diagonal  edge ... but that is easy to do!

I used the Festive Fall - Slimline Size Paper Pad for all the layers of my card.

To decorate the card I used the Who Loves You Stamp/Die Duos set to add all the owls and branches which are on all of the panels.

On the first panel from the left side seen in the photo above, I also used the Double Stitched Pennants die set to add the "Woo-Hoo!!" sentiment.

When you open the card to reveal the centre panel I have a birthday sentiment also included in the stamp/die set using the Double Stitched Ovals and Ovals die sets for the layering.

On the panel on the far right hand side I added the "Hoot Hoot Hooray" sentiment using the Alphabet Flags die set.

Here is a look at the card from the other side of the card. The top portion of the orange panel can be seen from the front when the card is closed. I repeated some of the elements I used on the front of the card.

My next card today is a Slimline Card using the new Slimline Quatrefoil Background die, there is also a Quatrefoil Background available for those who prefer to create A2 Cards. To create the Slimline portion of my card I also used the Slimline Card Base and Slimline Rectangles die sets.

To decorate my card I used the new Cross Layering Combo die set, this is a 4 layer die set which you use to create this beautiful layered Cross. I die cut mine from white and different shades of purple. I layered the cross to a white oval from the Ovals die set to help define the cross a little more.

At the bottom of the card I used one of the sentiments from the Be Still Stamp set. 

For my final card today I created a A2 size card. I used another sentiment from the Be Still stamp set. The solid cross included in the Cross Layering Combo die set that I used for my second card in this post was used to die cut the sentiment. I also die cut another cross from black cardstock and offset it slightly to give the cross a shadow. 

To create the A2 Card I used the A2 Portrait Card Base with Layers and Matting Rectangles die sets. The patterned paper used on the card base is from the Landscapes Paper Pad, there are a number of papers included in this paper pad that would work well with the cross.

Wonderful cards. I think that cross is the prettiest I've seen!
