Welcome to Day 3 of A Blog Named Hero’s Christmas-travaganza! I hope you’re enjoying what you’ve seen so far and getting lots of ideas for the holidays.
Here’s one of my projects–table placecards. I used the adorable snowman that comes with a matching die and used the partial die cutting technique.
I first learned about this technique from Amber Daigre in the online class A Cut Above. She shares a picture tutorial here on her blog. Basically, you line up the die on your cutting plate (of your Big Shot or Cuttlebug) so there is only a partial cut that will extend beyond the fold.
The snowmen were colored with Copics and the holly on the hats were stamped in green, trimmed and attached to the hat.
You could easily make cards with this technique, too. Just change the size of your card base and allow for the height of the snowman so that everything will fit in an A2 envelope.
Speaking of cards, I made one with an extra snowman. I inked up the Snow Dots background and let it fade on the bottom so the sentiment would be easier to read.
Love this little guy! His shape reminds me of a marshmallow, and having the matching dies makes working with him a breeze. You can easily crank out a bunch of projects in no time at all.
