Hello friends, I’m back with another video to show you how to use intricate dies and patterned dies as the basis for your mincing. Even if you don’t have a machine you should peek in on this one. Adding the Minc brings another whole dimension to dies. Whether it’s a small touch or an entire background, it has a look that is quite unique – polished, yet unique!! I have to confess that I’ve been playing with the machine for many months and wanted to blog about it before I started using it on my cards.
I’m sharing two cards today. The card above card features intricate die cuts and makes use of some double borders. I suggest having a look through your stash to figure out which dies work best as long as there is some defined detail, it’s worth a try to run a copy then minc. I’ve used Spellbinders Labels Forty Nine along with Spellbinders Floral Ovals and Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large with a detail piece from Spellbinders Swirl Bliss Pocket. The ‘celebrate’ sentiment is from Spellbinders Phrase Set Two.
Above that is a card that makes use of a pattern die to make a full background. It ultimately uses Spellbinders Grate Effects for double duty – background and overlay. I’m using the negative space from the word Hello in Spellbinders Phrase Set One that is mounted onto a hand cut pennant and decorated by Spellbinders Heirloom Oval.
