This week's Make It Monday is a very cool technique for partial die cutting. It involves foam and chip board in order to selectively die cut only the portion you want. I don't have any foam and to be honest, I'm too lazy to do all of that. Like Elena, my first thought was I could stamp and image and just cut around the top portion and get the same effect. But while lying in bed I starting coming up with this design and I don't have the skills to hand cut around that scalloped oval. I decided to draw a line on my cardstock, line up my die, tape it on to the cardstock, and then carefully run only half of the die through my cuttlebug. Leigh cut hers the same way on her beautiful page. Then all I had to do was cut along the line to remove the rest of the cardstock around the die cut portion.
I think this could be really cute as a band for Easter eggs.
Thanks for coming by today!
