Step 1 Envelope Base: Cut a smooth white card stock measuring 7” by 12”. Score at 4” and 8” on the longer side. On one end place the decorative border from the Delicate Border die and place the coordinating die on the other end.
Tips to remember here:
Tip1. Since the paper is wider than the platform of die cutting machine, the pressure will not be even in the center. To get a crisp and neat cut, heat set the paper a little with your heat gun. That will remove the moisture of the paper if any and it will help give a crisp cut. Also, use an extra shim to build extra pressure on rollers.
Tip2. Always remove extra stickiness form printers tape by sticking and removing it a couple of times on your hand.
Tip3: Stick the dies with the tape in such a way that painters tape relaxes on the paper which has to be discarded after the cut. Check the picture for reference.
Step 2 Crease the envelope base on score lines and glue another white die cut on the inside of the fold as well.
Tip4. Gluing a same die cut on the back side will add an extra beauty to your project besides making it sturdier. Though adding an extra die cut also adds to extra hard work but it’s worth all our efforts when it gives extra life to our projects.
Step 7 Belly Band: Cut a strip measuring 1” by 8” from white cardstock, designer paper 7/8” by 8”, one circle frame by nesting 2nd and 3rdouter dies of classic circle die, one circle base from pattern paper and a die cut of Raindrop and Roses die. Glue both the strips and score at 2” and 6” as shown.
Other Supplies Needed: Smooth white Cardstock, Glossy Accent, Red Tacky tape, Score board.
