DIY: DIY “Laser Cut” Stationery

April 2, 2014

DIY "Laser Cut" Stationery | Damask LoveProject-Ranking-FormatAny stationery obsessed person is familiar with the awesomeness of laser-cutting. The intricate cuts draw you in and make you stare only to be ripped away by the price tag which is usually somewhere between Bentleys and bankruptcy…well maybe not that bad…but they are usually a pretty penny, especially if you want more than one.

Turns out that with a little creative die cutting and with the right supplies, you can re-create the look of laser-cutting at home…and honestly, even if you don’t own ANY of these supplies already, it would probably be cheaper to stock up on them now than to purchase the real deal.

I’ve put together a video to show you exactly how this is done – and at only two minutes and some change, you won’t need to spend much time learning this easy technique.

  1. Oh, Amber! You really know my craftlife so well. I own several of these cover plates from Papertrey Ink and was looking for a simple stationery set to send out. Thank you! Hopefully after my homework I’ll have time to play in the studio. TFS! šŸ˜€

  2. Stunning and so elegant!
    Quick question ….. won’t the writing show through the stencil – or do you just write behind the sentiment strip?

  3. Love it; A set of these would make a wonderful gift. Can’t wait to get the die and get to work. TFS your creativity!!

  4. “…somewhere between Bentleys and bankruptcy”
    I get such a kick out of your commentary. Thanks for the chuckles and for pointing out this gorgeous die.

  5. thanks so much! I just finished trying this technique! I don’t have this die, but the Anna Griffin ones worked really good too. didn’t have this tape either, so I used painter’s and doubled up on it…and it worked great! thanks again!!

  7. These cards are so lovely! I love the look of the pale colors behind the detailed cover – AWESOME! Looks like I’ve got another die cut in my future!

  8. I am not having good luck with leaving the space for the greeting. How do you know how far to put the die thro’ the big shot to have the blank space? Someone said in previous comment they used 2 layers of painters tape. Why would that be? Thanks for any help-I love the die cut!
