This is the Grate Effect die that I have used many times and it you can create some lovely cards with the whole pattern
Way back in March I showed you Embossing with dies using this same die to push the pattern into your card without cutting it.
But for todays tutorial I am going to show you how to use the bits that would normally been thrown away and we will create a really sparkly card with some glitter
It is going to be photo heavy so my apologies for that before I start.
- Wild Orchid Crafts flowers
- Want2Scrap Pearls
- Mei Flower Satin Ribbon
- Glitter Magic Sand Gold Glitter
With the outside edge to this die cut two panels in white card and hinge them together to form your base
Then with a piece of double sided adhesive sheet cut another one and leave it to one side for now.
Then very carefully you are going to remove the card from the die so that all the waste pieces remain in the slots
Make sure to press it down onto them so that they are all caught onto the adhesive.
Make sure that it is all covered and then dust off the excess glitter and return it to its container.
Then I can trim it down to the size I want for the base card I made earlier.
Wrap these panels with some white ribbon and stamp and emboss your sentiment
Add in the flowers of your choice and there you have a lovely card and no waste at all from your die
More tomorrow ...
