HELLO KITTY die cuts - Graduation

More Hello Kitty!! Yesterday I posted all of the specs for this die cut. Click here for the info. Today I wanted to share more tips and tricks. I made 2 die cuts the other day with a black and gold color scheme. As you know, Hello Kitty must be black and white so it was a challenge to differentiate between the black cap and gown versus the black shadow required for a proper Hello Kitty image.

Never fear!! Glittered cardstock to the rescue!! I used it for all 3 colors you see. It was the perfect was to differentiate.

Gold foil cardstock was used behind the pleats, in the hat and for the tassel. It was the first time I even considered bringing in that pop of color. I love the result!! One die cut was added to a keepsake box so I made the black layer out of chipboard and cut the same image (flipped) out of wonder tape (double-sided sheets of the red tape we all know and love!) so that it would adhere well.

When I neglected to get it just right on the die cut I used my fav new fussy cut scissors to neaten things up. Worked like a charm... The red layer is still on and can be peeled when ready.

Here they are!! Aren't they just darling?? I love Hello Kitty!
