Halloween Apertures

Sunday, October 12, 2014

 
Holiday Apertures dies are not just for Christmas cards.  As I've said before, this is a die set that will take up permanent residence on your craft table.  I have separated my 4 pieces, but they very easily fit back together and can be held in place with a little bit of low-tack tape.  This is exactly what I've done here, but instead of running them through my machine with the intention of cutting, I've embossed.  I use a Cuttlebug and here is
my sandwich from the bottom up:
A Plate
B Plate
1 Tan Mat
Cardstock
Dies (Face Down)
B Plate
 
 
They create the most beautiful quilted look and feel and can be used to frame any images.  I've chosen to create a Halloween card to send to my nephews.  They're getting older and probably won't appreciate a Halloween card much longer.   Until then, I'll enjoy making these for them.

 
Have a great day!
