OUT OF THE BOX - DIE CUT TECHNIQUE
Hi, this is 'Krafty Girl' Becky from Cards by Becky...with an "Out of the Box" Die Cutting Tutorial.
I noticed on the Kraftin' Kimmie Facebook Page you all were asking about this technique.
This is a great way to add interest to your cards and much more!
My fellow 'Krafty Girl' Stephanie did an 'Out of the Box" Fussy Cutting tutorial, check it out here.
This tutorial will show you how to use a die cut for the technique.
Die Cut Shape
Let's get started!
Step 1: Lay your die cut over the stamped image.
Decide which part of the stamped image you want to be "out of the box".
Step 2: With a pencil, lightly trace along the inside and outside of the die cut,
next to the parts of the stamped image that you want to be "out of the box".
Step 3: After tracing, here is what it will look like when you take away the die cut.
Step 4: Time to cut with scissors!
Please remember, the lines you traced are NOT the cutting lines.
Your die cut will cut 1/8" inch less than the first traced line.
With scissors, you will cut between the first and second traced lines.
and run it through a die cutting machine.
this is what it will look like.
Step 7: Remove the die cut and fussy cut around the "out of the box" stamped image.
Your finished! You now have some of the stamped image "out of the box".
Thanks for following along!
