Thanks for popping in. Spinning plates here. So many things in the pipeline, so many ideas moving through and taking shape – so many things to consider, remember, factor in.
There is a vast difference between design and manufacture, and as wide a gulf again between manufacture and marketing. How our little Clarity Crew manages to pull this off week on week, month on month, year on year, is quite astounding. It ain’t easy, I know that for sure. And this past year has certainly been a challenge! But we’re still here – and going strong!
Our new Half price Weekly Offers, underpinned by tutorials and blogs, are also proving popular. This week, the Floral frames and Sentiment Dies are centrestage:
Here’s a cool variation, using one of the floral corners reversed. I like this effect. I like the open corner.
Right. Here goes!
- Take a 5″x 5″ white card blank and draw a line 2.5″ from the top (ie the middle) from the folded edge to the outside edge. This will allow you to line up your die more easily so that it is in the middle
- Run it through your die cutting machine
- Now take a piece of designer paper, measuring 5″x 5″ and position the 6th from the middle Nested Square Die as shown
- Run through your die cutting machine and then attach using our Roll-a-Tape glue runners, slightly offsetting, to allow part of the card blank to show
- The designer paper will overlap the fold as shown – stick down using the Roll-a-Tape glue runner – it adds that elegant finishing touch to the back of your card
- Die cut a selection of sentiments or choose a stamp of your choice to finish off
Here are a couple more examples, using the same principle:
- The above card uses the smaller flourish of the frames, rather than the larger flourish.
- Take a piece of card measuring 3.5″ x 3.5″ – draw a pencil line corner to corner to make it easier to line up the die. Run through your die cutting machine 4 times to create the centrepiece
The same idea, but using the larger flourish
- Take a piece of card measuring 6″ x 6″ – position the die as shown and die cut 4 times. Simples!
Thing about these dies is the interchangeability and snipability. So many possibilities. Worth taking a closer look? The Offer of the Week is available HERE
