Make It Monday #56: Die Cutting Partial Images
The Papertrey Ink "Make It Monday" technique and challenge this week featured Betsy Veldman showing us how to take our dies and mask them in such a way that they only cut part of it's image. This is the die I chose to use. I LOVE this die by Papertrey Ink. It is a cover plate called the Quatrefoil Die. Fully used, it makes a beautiful decorative screen.
I chose to mask about two thirds of the die, cut, and then trim off the bottom edge just a bit.
I layered the partial die cut over my stamped image...and then layered a similiar stamped image over my partial die cut to create this...
This challenge has so many possibilites. Thanks Betsy! To see the Make It Monday Challenge for yourself go here: http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/2012/03/make-it-monday-56-die-cutting-partial-images.html
