MFT New Product Tour
It's time!! All of the new stamps and Die-namics are now available at the MFT Boutique! I'm sharing a card using Spider Web Die-namics & Stamp Set.
I made a pretty clean and simple card today - no patterned paper for this one. I started by cutting out some Tangy Orange Card Stock with the Peek-a-Boo Trio Die-namics and then trimmed it to show only 2 open circles. I'll show you how I did that in a second. Then I cut out the Spider Web Die-namics in Grapesicle Card Stock and the spider in Black Licorice Card Stock. I cut out the letters in Grape Jelly Card Stock with the High-Rise Alphabet Lowercase Die-namics and added a couple Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX Die-namics for a little accent.
The inside is stamped with a sentiment from Spider Web Sentiments and I added another spider with black thread for a little web.
Here is a fun way you can trim any Die-namics that is symmetrical. I use this technique for many of the border Die-namics, like Simply Scallops Medium Die-namics and Flower Border Die-namics.
First, cut out the die as-is:
Next, choose what size you'd like to cut the die - I chose to use 2 circles, but you can opt to use one circle as well. Place the die cut back inside the Die-namics. I left 2 circles inside the die and have one hanging outside:
Then run it through your die cutting machine, just enough to cut the one end:
Now you have two finished sides of the die - and you just tripled the fun!
