Willkommen zu einem weiteren Paper Crafts Magazin Bloghop! Ich freue mich, dass Ihr heute vorbeischaut um diese neue Spezialausgabe zu feiern:


While hopping today, you will see samples of die cutting other mediums than paper. Die-cutting machines give you so many possibilities! I decided to use thin wood veneer on my card:

Während Ihr heute so dahinhüpft, werdet Ihr viele Beispiele sehen, wie man andere Medien ausser Papier stanzen kann. Stanzmaschinen bieten so viele tolle Variationsmöglichkeiten! Ich habe mich für Furnier auf meiner Karte entschieden:

Great card! Love how you used the tag under your snowflake and doily.

paulettesprettypapercrafts said...

Oh, I love how you cut your die cuts in half, what a great way to get more mileage out of them and the special mediums like the wood. Great layering with a tag on a card, it's a nice way to fill the space with a smaller die cut. I have to remember this.
