Watch For It Wednesdays #20

All right, it's midnight and you are happily crafting away when you discover you are out of pop dots and/or chipboard. The project you are working on really needs some extra depth and dimension. What do you do? Give up and go to bed OR come up with a solution. If you are working with diecuts, I have the perfect remedy for the problem. :) Instead of cutting out one of your design, try cutting out five or six (depending on the weight of the cardstock). As you can see in the above picture, I cut out six of the new July Sizzix release die called Frame, Hanging w/Scallop.

All you do is simply glue the six diecuts together. This raises the diecut to a wonderful level and
gives your project great dimension. It makes the diecut stand out plus it looks pretty from all angles. :)

Give this tip a try sometime. I think you will be very pleasantly surprised with the results.
(Plus you don't HAVE to be out of pop dots and/OR chipboard to try it.) (Wink, wink.) Be sure to check out all the great products at Scrapping Cottage.
