There are many YouTube videos on using word dies on card fronts. Boy, some cards are so awesome in their design and the creator of the cards are unbelievably talented. I’ve wanted to make a card featuring the cut out word or phrase but I don’t have the proper dies.
I have letter stencils!
The trick is….turn the patterned paper you wish to use over to the back side. Also do the same with the letter stencil, turn it over so it is backwards. The letter tracing will be from the RIGHT to the LEFT instead of how we normally read – Left to Right.
Carefully cut out the traced areas. Make sure to go slow. You can use the cut out parts on another card.
I was going to use my Tombow glue to attach these pieces but it didn’t want to come out. I had to use Glossy Accents. Worked fabulous on the large cut out piece, but got pretty messy on the cut away letters.
I have not used my little Xyron Sticker Maker in a long time. Since I’ve already messed up the front of the letter piece with glue showing I might as well make it really shiny 😀
As a newby card maker or even a scrapbook layout person, don’t get yourself all boxed into the belief that you “HAVE TO HAVE” specific machines and tools to do what you want to do. There is, ALWAYS, a way to do what you want.
I had my Chemo Port implanted yesterday while my tutorial video was going up. Joe is out of town and will be home Sunday. My neighbor was very kind to take me to the hospital and come and get me when the procedure was done. What you see here is one drugged up woman 😀
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Those of you that have been in the path of Michael my prayers have been for your safety and comfort. Many people will be displaced for a time, electricity will be off in some areas, scary times for everyone.
