Make it Square




Hi bloggers!  You can change the way that a die looks so easily by cutting it down in size and it is so easy to do!  Your rectangular shaped dies look great as squares and you just need to hide the cut lines. Today's video shows you how to do this easily.













 The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x  7 1/2" in size.   All for now, Sue x

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Sue, I loved watching you make this card on your video, the colours are beautiful and your compilation of the die-cuts and how you have manoeuvred the background die-cut is genius !! I adore the addition of the edge bling, it certainly adds the finishing touch, and the centre die is perfect for covering the 'join'. I love it !!
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Tressa said...

I have tried the edging technique before but have yet to get the confidence to try changing the shape of a die cut as you have done. I think I need to go through my dies to find out which ones respond well to this method and just go for it on copy paper. Perhaps then, I might come up with a card as lovely as this one. The papyrus is yet another lovely colour in the Foundations range isn,t it?

lilysmum said...

Good morning lovely lady! Thank you for reminding me that a die is not just one shape-or doesn't have to be! I think I must make myself a reminder of this to sit in front of me when I craft cos I always forget to experiment. Lovely blue sky and sunny day so far just chilly. Hope the sun is shining on everyone else. Hugs,Theresa x

Stephanie Cotterill said...

Hi Sue.
This is beautiful and so clever how you see several different shapes from just one die.
Maybe I should spend my 2016 winter hibernation cutting and snipping away at my dies to see what I can do. But I think I'd feel like a registra performing my first heart surgery and break out in a panic sweat lol. I know... it's only card lol.

Sending gentle hugs your way Sue.

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and the Wilsonettes,
THis is a bonnie card today Sue and the caramel/caramac colour of the coloured card is a nice soft shade but pops and lets the varying parts of the card show their own beauty off to perfection. Sorry again i don't have these dies but i will try it with some of your other dies that i do have. I am going through an aqua phase at the moment and it's all your fault Sue since showing the stunner you did the other week and i just had to get the colour and i am loving it. Anyway side tracked again there todays delight is so clean with the white and just that pop of caramel gives it a whole new look. THank you flower for the inspiration that you give so generously each day as i do appreciate what you do for us. I made a card for my Brother in law for Christmas with your dies but used some of the kaleidoscope mirri( i know, i'm swearing using the mirri word) to bounce the tree lights off it and it was just magical. But more than that him and his new wife loved the card as it was so unusual which is down to you and the inspiration that you so generously give flower. The other one was their wedding card which i made in the design of lemon and white card that i gave to a special lady when i met her in Glasgow. Thank you dear friend for being a constant source and wonder of inspiration, sending hugs your way just to keep you company.
Well folks it's a lovely day up here in the Ochils if a tad chilly because it's -2 but the spectacular view of the hills and the sun coming out now and again to bounce off them is stunning. Sorry i wasn't in yesterday but i had my father in laws fueneral and some how couldn't get into the spirit of things. I only hope that now he is gone his children can either get on or just leave each other alone as i have never known a family like this in all my life.
Tracy flower i hope that you are recovering from your latest dose of Chemo flower and that you have some get up and go back again soon. Sending you hugs to keep you going flower.
love and crafty hugs

I do like this card! I usually avoid any dies that won't fit the size of cards I make, so not being able to think outside the box I have no larger dies, will have to go shopping now!! :) Off to make a cuppa so I can watch the video in comfort.

Myra said...

Hello Sue,
You are very clever! We knew that already mind you! What a pretty card . I love what you have done with the die - and I love this caramel shade of card stock. Norah has done it again - I had forgotten all about Caramac - is it still made? My friend loved it and bought it after school sometimes! It was too sickly for me! That wasn't yesterday, you know!!!.
Love to all, still thinking of you, Sue and Saba!
