Create Great Layers With Framelits

You can see that the circles and the windows framelits layer beautifully.  It’s a great way to get perfect shapes that layer together just the way you want them to with no fussy cutting!

What is a Framelit?

A framelit is a small metal die cutter that works in the Big Shot to cut paper quickly and easily. Framelits allow  for easy cropping of photos, precise cutting of windows and frames in a card and even 3-D layering. In addition, the design of a Framelits Die allows for perfect cutting of shapes, which is useful for stamped images or sentiments.  You can see exactly where you are cutting around images and sentiments!

Circles Framelits:

You get a set of die cutters which allows you to make frames and layers without any measuring at all!!  I used one of the circles framelits to cut around my sentiment from the Perfect Pennant stamp set.

 

The Windows Framelits:

Quick Tutorial:

Creating the background:

I created the background on the Whisper White card stock by randomly stamping one of the Petite Petals images first in Real Red, then in Coastal Cabana and finally in Baked Brown Sugar.  I just randomly stamped one color at a time and made sure to leave some white space around the flowers.  It’s okay to overlap the images and it’s okay to go off the edges and stamp only partial images.  Make sure that you clean off your stamp between colors, and make sure you re-ink your stamp each time you stamp the image unless you are trying to create lighter and darker images by stamping off the color.

I stamped the background first and then cut my background paper to the size that I needed.  I got several cards out of one sheet of background paper.  I will be sharing another one tomorrow on my blog and one in my newsletter as well!
