Tutorial: Hello Die-Cut Card
Chrissie has created a fabulous tutorial showcasing the newly released Contemporary Alphabet lowercase letters, numbers, and puncuation!
Crafter's Companion Supplies:
Step 1: Hold your dies in place with repositionable, low-tack tape and run it through your die cutting machine (the panel is 5.25 x 4).
Step 2: Flip over the panel and use your tape runner to add some heat resistant acetate to it. This will be your shaker window.
Make sure you use strong adhesive, like the extra strong permanent tape runner.
Step 3: Grab some foam and cut it so it will fit to your panel. Make it smaller by about 1/4" all around or 1/8" on each side (approximately 5" x 3.75").
Step 4: Cut the window. This will be hidden, but to keep it simple, I used the Die'Sire rectangles die.
Step 5: Rub the glue around with your finger or a q-tip (if you don't want to get messy).
Step 6: Adhere it to the back of your panel, on top of the acetate. It will be hidden, but you still have enough foam to use as foam adhesive, so your whole card will lay flat and not buckle anywhere.
Step 7: Die cut this wildflower from in white cardstock.
Step 8: Add the glue to the edges again and dump in your shaker elements. You can add sequins, die cuts, beads, glitter, etc.
Step 9: Place a blank panel cut to the same size (5.25" x 4") over the panel and press down.
Let it dry (preferably under something heavy) for at least thirty minutes before shaking it a lot so no beads to stick to the edges.
Step 10: Once everything is dry, adhere to the card base.
