Have you heard about Partial Die Cuts? I have seen cards made with these and I couldn’t wait to try it. It’s really quite simple to do. You can see that the flower outline is only partially cut on my Highland Heather piece (2 3/4″ x 5 1/2″) of patterned paper. I placed it on the cutting plate of my Stampin’ Cut and Emboss machine as it is shown in the photo below.
Next, I placed the patterned paper on the card base and put both in my stamparatus. I DID NOT adhere the patterned paper in place. I want to pop it up on dimensionals later. I placed the corresponding stamp into the cut out. I will then close my stamparatus and pick up the stamp. Using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I’ll stamp the flower image.
Once the image is stamped, I’ll remove it from the stamparatus and use the “fill in” stamps to color in the flower. I used Highland Heather, Mossy Meadow and Balmy Blue inks.
I adhered a 3/4″ strip of patterned paper to the left edge of the die cut piece of paper. Then I popped these up on the card front. Be sure to line it up carefully so the die cut outlines the stamped image on the left side.
I added a Happy Birthday sentiment from the Art Gallery stamp set and cut it out with the die from the Art Gallery Bundle. A twine bow and few rhinestones finished off the card for me.
I hope you will give this a try. It was not difficult at all.
