You Are Simply Amazing | Stamp to Share International Blog Hop

I am so excited to be back with the International Stamp to Share Blog Hop this month!

This month we are featuring the Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration items: 


Today's card features a technique where I don't fully cut out the die cut. Leaving a sliver of cardstock in tact at the bottom as you can see in the photo below. There's lots of fun things you can do with this technique so give it a whirl!

In order to achieve this you may need to try this a could times but lay the top cutting pad from your Big Shot Die Cutting Machine just above the bottom of the thinlet.

To make life easy for me, I use my scoring tool to create a soft line where I'd like to cut the line.  It also is a neat trick to help you get the inside bits and bobs a little easier.

In addition, the final project included Stampin' Up! product items True Gentleman Designer Series Paper, Linen Thread and Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack

As always, I am so glad you dropped by but most of all...

you are simply amazing.

Keep hopping along to my friend in the UK, Monica Gale!
