Isn’t this Kites Reverse die wonderful? I love that it’s all one piece & does the partial swirls as well. I die cut it into the Recollections heavy wt c/s…although it says it’s 110# it’s way heavier than the other 110# c/s. I wanted to be able to pull up the swirls slightly w/o worrying about it bending or tearing. I had a watercolor bg I made ages ago w/ blues & greens & a little iridescent medium (very sparkly IRL) & I loved the colors but wasn’t crazy about the overall look of it. So just using bits & pieces behind the kites was the perfect solution. I backed it w/ a very fine, smooth glitter c/s & let it show thru around the edges & under the kite tails. All that was left was to stamp the greeting & add a few sequins. 

Here’s a look at the inside using a few leftover glitter kite parts. 

Next stop is Vickie‘s Blog!  Please be sure to comment on all the DT will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!

  2. Love it Julie! Such a fun die that does so much with just one cut. Love your use of the watercolor blue with the bit of sparkle. Especially love the little free style bows on the kite tail on the inside!

    Beautiful card.
    I love how the swirls are popped
    up. The glitter around the
    kits really set them off.
    thanks for sharing.

  12. What a cute idea for this die! It looks nice and airy. I can almost feel the crisp autumn wind.
