Easel Wedding Card

There's nothing particularly special about this easel card except I thought I would show you what I did with the Spellbinders Fancy Tag.
I made the sentiment on the computer and wanted to mount it on the card using a fancy tag, but the sentiment was too long to fit in the space, so I did a little modification.

  • I began by arranging the die around one end of the sentiment and rolling it just part-way through the machine cutting just one half it. 
  • I then rolled it back out of the machine, lifted off the die and arranged it around the other end of the sentiment and again rolled it just half way though the machine, cutting the other half, before rolling it back out.
On the left, one half of the sentiment has been cut and the die arranged around the other end of the sentiment, ready to be run through the Cuttlebug to cut the other half.
On the right you can see the finished die-cut compared to the original die.
I thought it was quite a good idea. I have reduced the size of Spellbinders dies many times, but this is the first time that I have enlarged one!
