Ruth Hamilton show us how she uses the Tim Holtz Deckle Cutter

The Deckle Torn Edge Trimmer adds a whole new dimension to your crafting!

It is designed to give your card edges a distressed look and is perfect for creating both clean and inked effect to layers. It is both sturdy and easy to use with dual measuring guides at the top and bottom, a grid base and a soft grip handle.

The deckle effect is slightly different at the top and bottom so you can use either for a different finished result.

This is how the deckle edge varies along the length of the trimmer.

To make the first card, you will need the following:

I love the way the torn edge effect works so well with ink.

Step 1

The trimmer is strong enough to cut through a Craft Perfect card blank. As you can see it is possible to trim just a sliver from the cardstock!

I have trimmed a 66x card on 3 sides and inked the edges with Dried Oregano ink.

Step 2

I trimmed a 13cm square of Pistachio Green card and a 12 cm square of white card and inked the edges before layering them on to the card front.

Step 3

While I had the trimmer on my desk I also trimmed around the flap of the envelope and inked it.

Step 4

I used the same ink to distress the white background die cut from the Festive Treats Mason Jar die cut and Rubber Duck ink to distress the bottom inner die cut before gluing both in place. Then I wrapped some twine around the top and attached the jar to the card on 3D foam pads.

I die cut and glued the lid in place and some white snowflakes in the jar. After adding some foliage I stamped the Christmas Wishes and cut with the Deckle Edge Trimmer and inked to match. I made some berries from the red mirror card and a hole punch and glued them to the holly.


To make this second card, you will need the following:

For my second card I have made a layered strip of deckle edged card to show off the die cuts

  • Tim Holtz Deckle Torn Edge Trimmer
  • Festive Treats Mason Jar die set
  • Craft Perfect US A6 Bright White card and envelope
  • Craft Perfect 300gsm Bright White Smooth card
  • Craft Perfect Pistachio Green card
  • Craft Perfect Cherry Red card
  • Craft Perfect Avocado Green card
  • Craft Perfect Classic Jute Twine
  • Nuvo Crystal Drops – Red Berry
  • Craft Perfect 3D foam pads
  • Craft Tacky Glue
  • Black ink

I have cut the following layers (straight at the top and bottom and deckle edged at the sides) - White – 7cm x 14cm , Cherry Red – 8cm x 14cm, Avocado Green – 9cm x 14cm

I layered them together and glued them to the card front.

Then I used the long foliage die from the Mason Jar set to cut 3 Avocado Green branches and 2 Pistachio Green branches and glued these as a bunch to the card front.

I stamped the sentiment onto white card, cut with the trimmer and attached above the foliage with 3D foam pads. Lastly, I added a twine bow and Red Berries Crystal drops.
