Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
Q: Marita asked: "Help please....I have seen die-shaped cards that seem to made without any of the edge missing, so where the die hasbeen placed slightly below the fold line. I am thinking of the Spellbinders grand labels one mainly. What do they do? "
A: I love creating shaped cards and even created a tutorial for them. You can find it here.
Feedback From Past Tutorials
Arlene has a suggestion for the Die Cut Stamp tutorial: "I really don't recall but if that won't work for you, take a look at all the precut packs of fun foam for kids. I have used those too. I often will stick together about three layers to get a thicker stamp to work with."
