Hello! This is Patty from the Crafty Kitten with my technique for the week. I'm going to show you how to use a die cut in a different way.
I turned to my trusty Cameo for this project. Using the drawing tool, I made a rectangle the size that I needed.
Using one the of tree files available in the Silhouette online store, I enlarged, centered it in the rectangle, and then cut it from white card stock.
I marked the green card stock where the tree would be positioned and began to cover the background with Washi tape. (If you are in a big hurry, you can use printed card stock.)
It was at this point that I realized the tape was semi-transparent and the green card stock was showing through. I changed plans and used the white die cut as a base to lay the tape so the true color of the Washi tape showed through.
I used the pencil marks to place the tree onto the card. Afterwards, I taped the stamped frame to the card and added the glitter star. This is how it looks after it is assembled.
I chose this stamp from Joy's new Oh, Christmas Puns for my card. Works perfectly!
Well, I hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial. If you decide to try this, with all the beautiful Washi Tape and papers out there now, I think you'll be happy with the results!
