Video Focus: 8 Card Ideas with Altenew Cube Cover Die

Today I'm sharing a few ideas on how to use Altenew's Cube Cover Die which I am obsessed with! When I saw this die, I knew I had to have it, it has a clean and simple geometric look which lends itself really well to many different card designs. 

I have made a video with a voice over (please excuse my voice as I am recovering from a cold) showing how you can use the die in many different ways.  I'm also testing out a new software which has been a major learning curve for me and unfortunately I have had a little trouble with the sound, apologies for this, I am hoping to improve on this for the future!

There are so many other ways you can use this die which I have not mentioned including using the die cut as a stencil which you can use with inks, sprays and event embossing paste.

Altenew and Birch Press have layering cover plate dies and some of them can be quite expensive so I decided to experiment to see if I could replicate the look with a single die and when I saw the Cube Cover Die, I knew I had to give it a go.

Thank you very much for taking the time to watch my video and read my blog! If you have any questions, please do let me know and I will get back to you as soon as I can. 

I hope that this has given you lots of idea on the many ways that you can us this versatile die. 

Have a lovely day!
