The Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine is an awesome tool! It can be used with dies or embossing folders to easily cut shapes and add texture to your projects.
Dandelion Wishes Embossed in White
This is a technique that I love using! I’m not sure what this technique is called but I really like how it highlights an area of the card front without using a lot of extra cardstock. The image to highlight is cut out of the background layer, attached to a different colour and reattached over the cut-out area – easy peasy!
Measurements and Instructions:
- Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
- Cut Basic Black Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 4″. Wipe with the Embossing Buddy. Use Versamark Ink to stamp dandelions, fluff and greeting. NOTE: Using the Stamparatus to line the images up allows you to get the placement correct before actual stamping. Sprinkle White Stampin’ Embossing Powder over the Versamark Ink image. Melt with the Heat Tool.
- Use the Big Shot with a plain Square Framelit to cut out the greeting and some of the dandelions. Use Snail Adhesive to attach the cut-out square to a Scallop Square that has been cut out of Whisper White Cardstock with the Big Shot and the Square Scallop Framelit. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to mount this completed square over the opening in the Basic Black layer.
- Embellish with Clear Faceted Gems.
