Die-Cut Hacks & Money Saving Tips!

Hi friends! I love to think of new ways to use old supplies, especially if it makes my current supplies more versatile.


In today’s video we will use some tried and true supplies to make a lovely card!

  1. Make a 5” square top fold card from white and an envelope to fit (I use a WeR Memory keepers punch board for this) using pattern paper and save the scraps for die cutting.
  2. Tape a nesting die onto a piece of white cardstock making sure the tape does not go inside the die window and use a blending brush to apply ink (like a stencil) to the inside of the die. Cut out the shape and set aside. At this time die cut any other items you will want such as a 3” circle from white and leaves and flowers for yellow and green.
  3. Place a piece of plastic canvas over your die cut panels and line up the edges with a row of holes and use a needle to poke a stitched line along the edge. Repeat with all panels.
  4. Stamp a wreath of lemons on the round panel.
  5. Layer elements on your card base but tie a ribbon around the middle panel before adhering.
  6. Embellish with die cut flowers and leaves.

I hope that this gives you some new ideas for old supplies and til next time happy crafting!
