Hi, Carolyn here to share Monday’s Die Cutting Machine project.for Scrapbook Blessings Club; and I chose a project using the Sizzix Big Shot die cutting machine…
But first my Tip: when creating these popup cards, at least with me, trim the inside insert just a tadbit on top and bottom so it will not ‘hang’ over the edges before adding glue.
So… onto the project:
This is what the outside of the card looks like. The base for this is also a Sizzix die which has the rounded corners that you insert into slits on back inside of the base. I used a Martha Stewart hand punch for the bottom and layered with design paper. Placed small pearls in the circles of the punched area; and the title is a cut file from MyScrapchick
Inside of the card: cut from a magnetic die with heart combined on the end. I placed a Stampin! Up ribbon on the one end; and I trimmed with tan strips of card stock on inside folds and one end. Using Stampin! Up Teeny Words stamps, I stamped Happy Birthday, and placed a small pearl on one end. I also sponged the coffee with Distress Ink – Tea. A gift card from Starbucks can be glue-dot on the opposite end of card.
This is the die that I used for the coffee cup (and not able to see the heart, but it’s there!!)
