Last Vellum Poppy Card
Today's card is the last one of the poppy cards I made with vellum last week. I know poppies are traditionally red but we have yellow ones in our garden and a friend of ours has pink ones.
I daresay there are other colours available nowadays.
Because of the sizing of these Framelits, you have to use a different technique to achieve frames from the technique you need for the Banners Framelits.
With the Banners, you place one Framelit inside the larger one, line them up so you have an even gap between the two of them all round and run them through your Big Shot.
As the sizing of each of the Tags & Labels Framelits is much closer than the Banners, you cannot lay one die inside the next largest die.
Therefore you have a choice:-
1). To achieve a very slim frame like the Tags & Labels Frame on the yellow poppies card. This is created by die cutting the outer edge of the frame by using the larger die. Then you place the smaller die in the centre of the die cut making sure it's centred correctly - otherwise you'll get an uneven sized frame.
