Hiya, I was going through some of the cards I made recently and did not have a chance to share – there are two today plus another video! I’m an evangelist of getting as much as you can from your dies and today that means being brave enough to cut them up. To make beautiful snippings of your dies, experiment with your cast offs. Snip them in half or cut around a curve to make them smaller.
I’m always looking for a quick blank card for thank you’s that I put in the mail. This is my new ‘go to’ small card ( 4″x 4″), it uses one of my new favorites from the Romancing the Swirl Collection collection; the decorative piece inside of the Ringlet Round die along with Hemstitch Squares. In the video below I give you tips and show you several ‘snipped’ elements to use.
Another example below – this is the card I show you how to make in the video. There are a couple of surprises – it’s worth a watch just to get you thinking out of the box. The card uses Sweetheart Swirl, Hemstitch Rectangles, Hemstitch Circles and Arched Swallowtail Pennants :-)
