Amour

Once again I found myself doing a bunch of swaps! This is one of the cards that I had made for those swaps. This one uses the new Framelits and Edgelits dies for the Big Shot. I LOVED using the Framelits but was really struggling with the Edgelits. I couldn't get a straight cut with them! So frustrating! Then I starting looking online to see what others were doing to get a straight cut, after all, I couldn't be the only one that was struggling, could I? Turns out I wasn't alone! One suggestion was to lay post-it notes over the Edgelit die to hold it in place and it worked perfectly! I am now in love the the Edgelits too!

Stamps: Take it to Heart, Artistic Etchings
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Edgelits, Heart Framelits, Perfect Polka Dots
embossing folder, Neutrals DSP, Pearls, dimensionals, sponge

Happy Stampin'!

They showed that little trick at Leadership. Never would have thought of it... I just laid it down and prayed for the best. :) Cute card, btw!
