Make it Monday #207: Double Partial Die Cutting


Hi everyone!
I am playing along with Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday: Double Partial Die Cutting.  I love this technique and the results you get.  I do have to admit I am terrible at cutting a straight line with my X-Acto knife.  I just can't get it straight even when I use a ruler.  Ugh!  I added the twine to cover up the horrible mess I created with my cutting.  Laura makes it look so easy.  

Here is the first card I made but wasn't happy with it.  I am sharing anyway.  After I created this one I thought of a cross die.  Hmmm, another card?!




I was inspired by Maureen's first card and used the sketch.  I also used similar colors but used a different stamp set, Pretty Patches: Tree with matching die.

I am also adding the Christmas card to Christmas Card Challenges: Anything Goes.


Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

  4. I saw that video and was in awe! Your cards are drop-dead gawjus, Sistah! I'm not good with a knife, either, but I couldn't tell it on yours.

  15. All three of your cards are awesome. I can't cut a straight line for the life of me either, even with a ruler. I don't know if your left handed or not, but that is my excuse...hahaha! I do love how you covered up your cutting with the twine...smart! Have a very blessed Easter, Kristie!!

  16. Your 3 cards are all beautiful Kristie! And I love your idea of using the string to cover up "the mess"....wish I would have thought of that, as my cuts aren't too straight either! And I can't even use Sue's excuse of being left handed!! Anyway, they're all great just like they are!! :0)

  17. I saw that tutorial and now you have inspired me to try the technique - I think i would probably need ribbon at the base too :-). Beautiful cards Kristie.

  26. These are all wonderful, Kristie. I thought the twine was inspired. Then read that it covered up a mistake. Now I think it is even more inspired.

  27. You certainly have this technique down, Kristie! LOVE each one of your beautiful cards!

  28. Three beautiful, softly colored card creations! Great save with the twine (I'm quite sure though that your cutting was just fine). Beautiful shading from the yellow to blue on your second card. Third card....love the checkered panel.

    Happy Easter to you and your family :)
