Lots of Lavender Partial die cut technique

I just had to try this Lots of Lavender Partial die cut technique! The idea of stamping an image and having it flow off the edge of a die cut as a focal point is something I love!  I have always been intrigued by off the edge die cuts for the edges or top of a card, but here we get to see it front and center!   

First of all, be sure and choose a die that you want to use and the stamp set that will fit with it, this will guide you in how much “fussy” cutting needs to be done.  Also in the video below I show how to stamp the image first on a bigger white piece of cardstock than needed.  The trick is to make sure whatever you “fussy cut” will fit inside the die being used.  (See video)

The base of the card is an A2 size cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″.  Score and fold at 4.25″.  The second white layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″.  Finally, the bottom DSP layer is 4″ x 2″.  Be sure and put a small strip of white paper behind the glitter washi tape so it would shine bright!  Remember to make your envelopes pretty!
