You’re done with your Christmas shopping, right? Lol, I have not even started! In the meantime, I wanted to pop in with a card and some Creative Team inspiration for the week. For my card, I wanted to try my hand at repurposing the filigree booklet die into a background for a card. How easy is that? Using the Filigree Booklet Die, I cut the same pattern into both sides (the die comes with two pattern inserts). By using both inserts the focal panel you come up with is pretty and covers a lot of real estate. I covered the double inserts with Breanna’s Corset Label Die which I had stamped with a Christmas sentiment!
Repurposing the Filigree Booklet into a Full Background
To cut, you simply run through once cutting and once embossing with the pattern, then run through a second time with the pattern in the second slot but only run through to cut and emboss to the edge of the die – just like partial cutting. You do that to minimize flattening out what you’ve already done.
What a lovely way to repurpose those patterns :-) Because they make a big full pattern it opens you up to using the background for whatever you want!! Hunt through your dies, is there anything there to repurpose?
