Design Tip 1: I count on Cut Tidy for intricate dies. The static acetate means that those tiny, intricate cut-out pieces will cling on, keeping your workspace just that little bit tidier—and it also acts as a light shim, being the perfect thickness with intricate die designs. It means a perfect cut, every time!
Design Tip 2: Try this trick when cutting small elements like letters:
1. Trim the cardstock to just slightly larger than the die and secure in place with tape.
2. Turn the cardstock over and place strips of double-sided tape. Leave the liner on.
3. Die cut as normal. You’ll have a die-cut sticker element, easy to adhere!
Trim the card blank to 17.cm x 18.5cm. Cut a piece of pink card slightly smaller, then glue to the card centre.
