The project I'm sharing with you this week for the final Dreamweaver Stencils March Madness Anything Goes theme just kind of came to me as I was trying to come up with ideas for samples using the new Dreamweaver Die Cuts. I had shared my class samples using the new Sailboat stencil (LG755) with you back in February, and I had a couple of extra images left over from the letterpress technique that I had decided not to use for the class, so I decided to use the new Nesting Frames dies (DD001) to create a layered sailboat image and really give it dimension. Here's how it went:
|Place a piece of removable tape face up and line the three smallest frames over the tape, cutting edge up|
|Carefully pick up the taped dies and place them over the image where you want them, cutting side down, Press the tape |
down lightly to prevent the dies from moving during cutting
|Sandwich the die and image between two cutting plates, cutting edges up (you won't see the die, just the back of your image) and run it through your die cut machine|
|Now your layers have been cut into frames|
|Apply one layer of foam tape to the largest frame, two layers to the middle frame, and three layers to the center layer|
|Go around the edge of each layer with a blue marker, then assemble them back where they belong. Add them to a matching card embellished with some May Arts white rik rak and you have a beautiful, dimensional card!|
I hope you enjoyed being "mad" with me this month, it has been a lot of fun! Thanks to everyone who has been playing along with us over at the DREAM it UP! blog, your creations have been wonderful.
