I'm a little late posting my October Club projects. This month, we focused on two card folds. The first one is called a Standing Card Fold and the second card is a Partial Die Cut card:
The Standing Card Fold has four score lines and five panels. We added layer upon layer of cardstock and designer paper. Isn't this neat?
See what the folds look like from the top in the photo below?
And I used the mitten die from the Many Mittens Framelits Dies to create this cute oven mitt for the front, along with the Layering Squares Framelits Dies and the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies:
- Card Base: 8" x 5-1/2". Score at 2", 3", 5" and 6"
- White Cardstock Layers: (4) 5-1/4" x 1-3/4" and (2) 5-1/4" x 3/4"
- Designer Paper: (3) 5" x 1-1/2"
These are the products I used for the first card:
I used the Seasonal Lantern stamp set and coordinating Lantern Builder Framelits Dies and showed my group how to partially cut the bottom only of the lantern with the die. Once the cut was made, we measured up two inches on each side and made an angled cut:
When cutting a partial die-cut like you see above, you place the die over the stamp image but add the top cutting place in a position so it only sits on the die where you want it to cut. So the edge of the cutting plate in this case, was positioned to cover the bottom portion of the lantern only. By not covering the whole die, the big shot does not apply pressure to the top of the lantern so it doesn't get cut. I hope that makes sense!
