Technique Tuesday 3-10-09

For club we are using the new circle cutter and the textured dies for the big shot.  I really wanted to showcase this texture die because it’s the new Manhattan Die and it’s finally available.  I saw this die at leadership and fell in love with it.  It is so pretty and I love how defined it is.  This is definitely not a subtle effect.

manhattan-march-club-cardTo make this card we first cut out a large circle with the circle cutter.  I cut out a 5″ circle I think.  We used a 4 1/2″ at club but it was harder to cut off the top and bottom for the same effect of the card.  Then we ran the die through the big shot.  I love how fast and easy it is to create such a beautiful texture.

To finish the card I just stamped the Congratulations from the Sale-A-Bration set and added some ribbon.  Remember that March 31st is the last day for Sale-A-Brationorders.  You receive on set with every $50.00 you spend and there is no limit.  I will be leaving for Hawaii on the 20th so all orders must be to me by the 19th or you can place an order on-line through my website.
