This is the second card we made at our monthly stamp club. It uses the stamp set called Peaceful Poinsettia. This stamp set has matching dies called Detailed Poinsettia Thinlits. The die set is great because it cuts out some of the images in the stamp set but it also cuts out different shapes such as a beautiful Poinsettia outline and inside. It is gorgeous. You can see what I mean HERE.
I did things a little differently with this card. I let them choose which way they wanted to use the die. One way uses the die as you normally would. It cuts out the image using your Big Shot. The other way is to use the Big Shot Embossing Mat so it only leaves an impression of the design without cutting it out. You can see the difference in the photos below.
Can you see how the first one cuts out the image and the second photo embosses the image? Honestly, I don’t know which one I like better. What do you think?
