Because they're so new, and you might not have tried them yet, I want to tell you about three ways to use the Framelits Dies from Stampin' Up!
- Cut out an image: Stamp an image on card stock, place the Framelit over the image and then run it through the Big Shot. One of the reasons I like them so much is that you can see exactly where the die will cut because the thin metal Framelits are only outlines of the shapes they cut.
- Cut a frame in a piece of card stock by placing the Framelit exactly where you want it. There's no restriction in where you can place it. A punch, on the other hand, only has a limited reach. I've wished many times I could punch a shape in the center of a card base. With the Framelits, now I can!
- You can also emboss with a Framelit. Turn the die so the cutting edge is away from the card stock, and put it through the Big Shot. I found it works best to use two Silicone Pads instead of a Cutting Pad under the card stock. So the sandwich layers are: Multipurpose Platform with Tab 2, two Silicone Pads, card stock, Framelit with the cutting side facing up, then the second cutting pad.
