Hello! I made this card with the NEW products from MyCreativeTime. I did some partial die cutting. I love how it turned out! I first made that polka dot piece with a Heidi Swapp mask and tide pool, butter bar, and orange soda shadow inks. I set that aside to dry and made the partially die cut portion. I snapped some pics along the way to show how I did it.
First I drew a line at 2 inches from the top of my cardstock. And then a line under that at 1/8 of an inch down. I lined the new dies up with the bottom line and used washi tape to hold them in place.
Then I lined up the top line I drew with the edge of the cutting plates in my Big Shot machine. This leaves the very ends of the numbers sticking out, and that part won't cut. This will make it so that the numbers only partially cut.
Here you can see what it looks like with the dies removed, but before cutting along the top line. And here it is after cutting...
And there you have it. Partial die cutting. :) And here's the side view of the card...
You may have noticed the "how-to" pics are of a white piece of cardstock. White showed up better, and I was experimenting. ;)
Head over to MyCreativeTime to see more with the NEW RELEASE!!
