From Dips - A CAS Wreath Card
Tools: Tonic Studios Intrica Wild Vine Circle Dies, Intrica Wild Vine Strip Punch, Layering Square Dies, Christmas Cracker Die, Grand Calibur
Paper and Card: Pearl, Stardream
Embellishments: Ribbon, Rhinestones
I know that some people are slightly nervous about using intircate dies, I can assure you that I had no problems at all but here are my tips for creating a great cut:
- cut your card to size pre-die cuting, this way you will be able to turn the dies
- when using more than 1 die (for this card I used 3 off the dies combined), you will need to turn the dies and pass it through more than once. It took three passes and turns for me to cut the wreath layers
- I don't use wax paper with Tonic Dies (I've never needed to) but I do dust my Grand Cailbur silicon mat with baby powder to reduce static on my complex dies.
- These dies are the size that fit in all cutting machines including the cuttlebug, not just the A4 machines.
