How’s the sun at your house? We had some great sunny moments here over the weekend, but not so much today. Good thing you can make your own sunshine with the Sunburst Thinlits Die and the Sunburst Sayings stamp set!
When I first saw the new Occasions catalog (during the pre-release – it’s a demonstrator perk!), I wasn’t too sure about this die. But now that I’ve been playing and I’ve seen samples, I have to tell you that I can hardly create without it! In fact, it’s even featured on the Pop-Up Mini Album that’s included with my January Stamps in the Mail Club projects.
Fringe Scissor Technique Tip for the Sunburst Thinlits Die Card:
When we cut with scissors, we often want to close the scissors completely – in other words, cut all the way to the tip of the blades. I know – there’s a satisfying ‘snick’ sound when the blades close, especially with high-quality scissors. But with the fringe scissors, the parallel blades are different. You DON’T want to close all the way to the tips.
Stop your cutting just shy of the blade tips, otherwise the card stock has a tendency to tear at the ends. So if you’re having this problem with your Fringe Scissors, now you know how to get perfect cuts every time – no tearing.
Want to know where the teeny balloons come from? They’re in the Party Punch Pack – along with a sweet cupcake and a teeny candle. I’m seeing confetti…watch out to the next person who opens a birthday card envelope from me!
Finally, see the background paper under the sunburst on this card? Here’s another version with a yellow background. Both papers are from one of the paper packs you can get for free as a Sale-A-Bration selection – the Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper.
Not sure how to add that paper while you’re shopping in my online store?
