Partial die cutting...
this technique uses the same idea as the technique that I shared right here last week with the card on how to make
a Flower border edge die
using a NON-border Die
but instead of making a border edge card I die cut partially the wings of this butterfly to make them pop from the card...the butterfly is only attached to the card by the center
I posted this card at the French blog: "Un brin de Créativité" for my DT assignments for Memory Box
place the die onto the paper, secure it with tape and mark with pencil on both sides where do you want the cut to end...
recipe of the sandwich using the "Cuttlebug"
plate A+ plate C+ die (ridges up)+ paper + plate B (the plate B stops at the arrow)
note: remember the edge of plate B is where you want the cut to stop
step 3; one wing cut, it pops from the card
step 4; repeat same process on the other side of the card. Both wings popped up
I used 3 different stencils from Memory Box...raindrops, Tessatina and leaves
make sure to ONLY stencil the background, not the wings...
the leaves where sponged with 2 colors of ink : green and Black
Make sure to mask the places that you do not want to show...
A green butterfly was placed on the back
A view from the top..
A last view...the wings pop up with this technique of partial die cutting...
I hope I gave you another idea on how to stretch your dies
Thanks for the visit
and the lovely comments that you leave me...
