One Die…. Four Ways!

I have a really quick publication share tonight as I’m  totally enjoying my holidays and haven’t even had a chance to make any cards yet! I also just got back from a visit to my brother and SIL  in Gladstone (only a 8 hour drive away) but it was so nice to see them, we ate way too much they have the best Indian restaurant across the road and to be honest it’s worth the drive lol.

So I thought I would share this publication for The Australian Cardmaking, Stamping and Papercraft magazine where I was asked to use one die… four ways and this is what I came up with using some fab MFT products (my apologies in advance for the photo heavy post).

Embossing with Dies at Addicted to Die Cutting!

This week’s technique  for my Addicted to Die Cutting series is a fun one and seriously a great way to get more from those dies.  It’s embossing with dies, kinda like creating your own diffuser!
