Introducing POETIC: Versatile Creative Dies

May 25, 2017

One definition of ‘poetic’ is as follows: having an imaginative or sensitively emotional style of expression. That description is perfect for the stamps and dies which are part of our brand new collection, Poetic! Join us this week as we take a closer look at all of the new products, share inspiring tutorials, and host a giveaway, too. View the complete collection by taking a peek at the catalog. All Poetic stamps and dies are also available in our online store.

If you are looking to give dimension and a finished look to your card designs, then these new Creative Dies are just for you. They offer versatility and can be used on many styles of cards, no matter the theme or season.

So how can you achieve an inlay effect with our new border die, 51-322 Vine Borders?

Begin by placing the die onto the edge of the main panel of the card. Use a temporary adhesive, such as painter’s tape, to hold it in place. Then run it through your die cutting machine.

Once the cutting is complete, your panel will look like this.

Adhere it to your notecard as is.

Die cut the border from inked or colored cardstock. Adhere it to your project. It will fit like a puzzle piece into the previously die cut panel.

We want YOU to share in the excitement of all things elegant and poetic, so how about a giveaway?
