I like very structural cards and die cutting is a perfect way to achieve that.




I start by die cutting two large - the largest Hexagon die - using two contrasting papers. I am using here a range of papers from the My Minds Eye Indie Chick collection. I love that is textured and has a nice thickness, thick enough to make the blank card.


Then I took the one for the front of the card and place a smaller die in the centre and secure  with low tack tape, I run it through the Big Shot and I got the aperture in the centre.




To create the folded card, I took the second large Hexagon and scored one corner at about 2cm or a bout 1" . That creates a flap in which I added Tacky glue to and then added it to the Hexagon with the aperture on. This is a quick way to create the base card using framelits with thicker card.




Die cut a variety of smaller Hexagons using several papers with different patterns from the same Indie Chick collection. This is the best way to make sure all the colours and patterns work well together. Then I place the base card on the cutting mat and play around with the shapes, layering them as the shapes all frame into each other at the same distance.




I realised that I needed something else over the front so I die cut another frame using the second largest Hexagon and a bigger one for the centre, that wat the yellow showing through is the same in both sides.

Then I used Ranger Distress inks - Broken China, Wild Honey and Gathered Twigs- to add details in all edges of the hexagons. 

I added all Hexagons using either foam pads or tacky glue. I added the buttons, brad (in the centre) and the message, all from the My Minds Eye Indie collection.

This is a Framelits 10-Die Set.

Framelits dies have the blade is in the inner edge of the die therefor you can see exactly what you are going to cut before hand. Also, it means that there wont any residual embossing left in the die cut, which makes it perfect for stamping before or after die cutting.

Framelits are compatible with the BIGkick, Big Shot and Vagabond machines (used with a pair of Cutting Pads and the machine's included Platform when using the Essentials Platform or Solo Platform & Shim, the Extended Adapter or Solo Adapter is required). All items sold separately.
