Thinking outside the square with our dies

Flourishes, circles and flowers with a little twist.

By placing the cutting plate only where you want the cut to finish you get a partial shape cut through. The rest is cut away with a scalpel to create a straight line.

Can you see what I meant ? Sometimes I'm a bit hazey at describing how to do something, seeing how it is done is easier for me. So I do hope you can see how this was done.


The bottom of the Whisper White layer was stamped in Wisteria Wonder with the sentiment out of an old but favourite stamp set Million and One.  This layer was adhered to a base of Wisteria Wonder and two strips of Wisteria Wonder were adhered just below the thinlit cut out.

I loved doing this one, such a delicate design and I have someone in mind to send this to after class. The three flowers were cut out of Pink Pirouette card, using the Flourish Thinlits. Another set of flowers was cut out of Pink Pirouette. A piece of Whisper White is placed inside to show through the cut out area. One of the sets of flowers was then adhered in over the Whisper White. Then the other set of flowers was adhered on top giving a deep design to the flowers.

The sentiment I chose was from the stamp set You've Got This, another favourite. An extra little flower was added to finish it off.

The last card started out quite plain on the outside, as it was supposed to be all about the inside popping, however it didn't work out as I had thought and the outside is just as busy as the inside.

The inside was created as a pop up by placing the plates over the circle and leaving a smidgen not covered so that it did not cut. The flower this time is stamped from the Special Reason stamp set, along with the sentiment on the front and inside.
