Hi everyone, when I was making my Brother-In-Law’s birthday card (which you can see here), my partner was offering me creative suggestions and one of them was to create a frame and have the beer bottles pop through. Whilst I didn’t end up using that idea at the time, it stuck with me and I really wanted to use it on another card.
To create the gingham frame, I used the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies on the Botanical Butterflies DSP. I picked out the largest and the third largest of the dies and held them in position with some post-it note tape as I didn’t want the dies to shift as I ran them through the Big Shot. Doesn’t it look effective? I kept the centre panel which was cut out for use on another card project.
While the Big Shot was out I also ran through the “thanks” and the “you” dies from the Well Written Die Set. When diecutting intricate dies I like to make sure I apply Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to the cardstock before I die cut. This makes it so much easier to adhere the die cut pieces, especially when layering them as I did for the sentiment.
Here’s the Card…
I used the Painted Seasons stamp set (which you can earn for free with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration). I actually fussy cut out the images but there are now coordinating dies!! YAY! That would have saved me quite a bit of time.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
Listed below are the supplies used to create the above project. If the stamp set comes in different types (such as clear mount and wood mount) or as a bundle, I link to all.
