Swimming by to say...



Hi and welcome, everyone! Lisa here from In The Crafting Cave with Tuesday's Tips/Tutorials. I have a fun project to share with partial die-cutting and a shaker card using the adorable Under The Sea Stamp and Die Bundle.

Who says the top of the card has to be straight?

1.Using the Stitched In Circle Die cut the largest scalloped circle.
2. Using the smallest scalloped Stitched In Circle Die center and lightly make a few marks around the outer edge, move die-cut to the side for now.

 3. Decide how you want to arrange the die-cuts. Easy so far, right?

This is where it gets interesting. 
4. Position the edge of the die slightly over your pencil mark.
5. Place top cutting plate over the die and line it up with pencil mark and run through the machine. 
Remember you don't want to cut the whole die.

That was the hard part. 
6. Now you have to die cut the smallest scalloped Stitched In Circle Die to create the frame.
This is very important, be sure the die is UNDER the partial cuts or you will cut through them. 
All that work for nothing, what?
