How to maximize your Designer Series Paper by using Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies

www.CreateWithTerriGaines.comFor today’s post I’m showing two cards both made with the Forever Lovely Stamp Set, Lovely Flowers Edgelits Dies and the Petal Pink Vellum Print from the Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series Paper.

 

 

 

For the main card so much of the beautiful Petal Pink Vellum Print is covered up by the top layer on the card.  I decided to cut a section that was hidden by using the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies and Big Shot.  This gave me a 2-5/8″ x 4″ piece to use on a Fun Fold Card.  (supplies, measurements and instructions for both cards are below).

Cutting out the middle section was so much easier with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies than it is with a paper cutter.  You are going to love the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies for all your paper crafting needs.  They are like a pantry item in your kitchen…you will find you use them a lot!
