Miss You, Miss You, Miss You

Hello crafty friends,

Mary here today with a quick Miss You card.  This card took me 20 minutes to make.  I used a blank card, my paper trimmer, a piece of pattern paper, a piece of red card stock and the new Cut Out Miss You die.

















I started by trimming the piece of pattern paper that was to be die cut to the width I wanted.  I placed the die in the vertical center of my pattern paper and using a small piece of washi tape to hold it's position, I made my first die cut.  Next I carefully aligned the die above and below my first die cut for my second and third die cuts.

I found it very simple to align the die and get my multiple cuts.   Once my three die cuts were done, I trimmed the top and bottom of my pattern paper, so that I had a nice even border.  I matted the pattern paper w/red card stock, leaving a tiny red border and mounted the layered element onto my card front, which I had already covered w/the same pattern paper I used for my die cuts.  The thing you can't see in this photo is that I used foam tape to pop up the top layer from the red card stock.  I'll have to take a quick angled photo of that and post it later for everyone to see how nice the added dimension looks.


Here's the Miss You die.






















I'm working on a few other projects w/this die, so until next time
