Happy Monday, everyone!!! Hope you are having a very blessed New Year so far! If you have made a resolution to do more stamping this year, or to find ways to save time while stamping, or to just have more fun, you have come to the right place! This week's video tutorial shows how easy it is to cut out shaped cards with your Spellbinder Dies. If you get tired of the same ole square or rectangle shaped cards, then it's about time you "mixed things up" a bit!!! Enjoy the video! (It's only three 1/2 minutes this time!! Yay!)
Now see how easy it is?! I can't wait for you to try it yourself! Now don't worry....if you don't have a Grand Calibur, you can still try it with other cutting machines....or by hand....here is how:
Measure your die, cut your cardstock and score in half as shown in the video. Tape the outside edges of the die to the card.....remember to leave part of the die showing at the top so that you will still have a folded card instead of two single pieces. Now, if your machine is not strong enough to cut through both sides of the card, that's okay....it will cut through one layer and will leave an impression on the second side that you can follow easily with scissors. Or, as I have done many times in the past, you can also trace your die with a pen or marker and cut the shaped card by hand....if you have a simple design, this is fairly easy to do with some good scissors.
Along with the card shown in the video, I have included some other samples of shaped cards which I have created with Spellbinders:
Garden Tag Set, Spellbinders Grand Labels One dies, Spellbinders Labels Four dies, Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish die
Happy Birthday Set, Spellbinders Nested Butterflies dies
I hope you have enjoyed the tutorial today. Looking forward to seeing your shaped cards!
