So onto my card! I used the new goodies that my Christmas money bought on this! The papers are from the Lawn Fawn Into the Woods collection. The dies are from Quinn's ABC's, now I have the coordinating stamp set too, and played around with the stamping on them. But in the end I left them as a die cut only. The little balloons are from the Lawn Fawn So Much to Say stamp set that I colored and fussy cut out. I have a picture tutorial below of how I die cut the birthday sentiment, the woodgrain paper is all one piece.
Start by lining up your letters onto the paper. I held mine down with washi. The magnetic base for my BigKick is SO on my wishlist! :) With a cutting plate on the bottom, then paper, dies, then put the top cutting plate just off the bottom of the dies as you see here. Then roll it through your machine. This was my first attempt, and ended up cutting four of the eight letters off!!
Second attempt, perfect!! The line you see is from a pencil so I could get my letters straight!
Now start trimming off the patterned paper in between the letters, making sure not to cut them off. Erase the pencil lines, and your done! A white drafting eraser is the only one I use, and removes any pencil marks without messing up or smearing your paper. Just my tip for you! I used dimensionals on the back of this piece to make it stand out on my card. So that's my tutorial for you! Give it a try, it's really easy and makes it look so cool! And can be used on any die image!!Thank you so much for stopping by today!!
