Fancy a bit of die-cut and washi tape magic to finish off this hop? I have two striking card designs for you featuring 3 of my favorite dies from Altenew’s stand-alone die release!
Fine Flora Stand-Alone Die Full Release
Click on the image to take a closer look at the full release. While I focused on the word dies for this post, there are so many wonderful goodies.
All the details to make these quick and simple die-cut and washi tape hand made cards are in this short cardmaking video tutorial. Watch here or in HD on YouTube. While you’re there I’d love it if you like, subscribe, and share with friends!
Waterbrush Hello Die
Are you a word die junkie like me? Word dies are so versatile and can totally save a card design when you don’t plan your sentiment placement ahead of time. Ask me how I know, LOL!
This card comes together quickly with the help of Waterbrush Hello Die and two washi tapes: Many Dots Washi Tape and Block Rainbow Washi Tape. I adore the size and style of this hello die and I’m certain it will make many appearances of future projects!
To help the Block Rainbow die-cut stand out I added a drop shadow and a vellum circle backdrop. Be sure to watch the video for a tip to pop up your vellum with ease!
Wide Washi Tape Cards
Need a card quick? Washi tape is exactly what you need!

Bitty Bloom 3D & Bold Thanks Die Sets
Hello, Bold Thanks Die Set! I love word dies that come with a shadow die. While you can create a drop shadow as in the previous card, the shadow die give the die-cut a border all the way around.
Bold Thanks Die Set, another new favorite, is perfect for everyday cards and masculine cards too. The font is modern with a bit of sass that’s not too frilly and feminine.
While these Bitty Blooms may seem understated as a lone flower, grouped together they make an ideal arrangement for this Many Dots Washi Tape backdrop.
Here, I watercolored them with Winter Wonderland Brush Makers in Mountain Mist, Lagoon, Emerald, Citrus Burst, and Silver. Although I painted four of them, I used the leftover bitty bloom for a card on the Altenew Educator Hop. Gotta use those pretty leftovers!
