Stitched Lace How-To

Thursday, June 6, 2019
Don't forget that the New Catalog Open House is only 2 days away on Saturday, June 8th from 10am to 2pm

One of the NEW products that we were able to pre-order is called STITCHED LACE DIES which makes this gorgeous lace piece for your cards.
There are a million itty bitty pieces that have to get cut out using this die.
I tried several ways to cut this out and this is the "sandwich" that I came up with (with help from my friends on the Demonstrator Planning Place FaceBook Page.)
1. Standard Platform (Big Shot)
2. Thin Adaptor Plate
3. Shim made with a sheet of computer paper folded in half
4. Precision Plate
5. Die with the cutting side up
6. Waxed Paper
7. Card Stock (I used Pool Party)
8. Clear Cutting Plate

Whew! that's one big sandwich! I ran it through the Big Shot back and forth, twice.
Your lint roller will be your friend in this process, but first I used my Die Brush
You will still have several little pieces that you need to poke out with your paper piercer.
This is what the waxed paper looks like after peeling it away from the card stock, but wait - don't throw that away - you can use it as a stencil so you can make a beautiful card front like this one...

Here is a tip: I stamped the larger flower first, then I stamped it again on sticky paper to make a mask  and cover it while I stamped the bird
