This is a fun and easy technique to do with your die cuts! This card uses one of the Stampin’ Up! Greetings Thinlit dies and the Zig Zag Embossing Folder. Die cut the “hello” from Crumb Cake cardstock, and then die cut from Mossy Meadow. Use the Crumb Cake “hello” to fill in the negative space on the Mossy Meadow cardstock – that’s how easy this technique is! Mass production tip – cut strips of Mossy Meadow and Crumb Cake cardstock, die cut with the same placement and switch out your die cut words – so you can create twice as many cards easily, with contrasting backgroound strips. The colours in this card (Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip and Mossy Meadow) tend to give a more masculine feel, but you can switch out the colours (and the embossing folder) easily to create a different feel for the card.
Don’t forget this tip to make removing your more intricate die cuts easy. (from the YamStamps YouTube channel). With this thinlit, I found that I didn’t actually need to use the waxed paper to get easy removal. I did end up with some of the holes embossing through (the dots on the die cut) – but this occurred even if I used nothing, so I used the dryer sheet to make my life a little easier.
I’m looking forward to trying out some of my new Holiday Catalogue goodies that just arrived, so will try to get to work on posting some projects with those new items!
