Yesterday, I shared an alternative method for using Stampin Up Framelits to create a debossed frame from a negative cutout. Today, I am sharing another alternative method for using the Stampin Up Framelits. This method provides a framelit size that is different from the usual.
Personally, I prefer the size between the Stampin Up Framelits to be smaller (i.e., 1/8″). To that end, here is an alternative for you to acquire a smaller size.
ALTERNATIVE 2: CREATE A STAMPIN UP FRAMELIT CUTOUT THAT IS ONLY 1/8″ LARGER THAN THE NEXT SMALLEST FRAMELIT (NOT THE USUAL 1/4″)
STEP 1. Select one framelit and desired card stock and cut out two framelits using the Big Shot. (Refer to yesterday’s post for the Big Shot sandwich.)
STEP 2. Lay the next smallest framelit onto one of the cutouts with the cutting edge facing upward.
STEP 3. With a pencil, trace around the framelit.
STEP 4. Using paper snips, cut along your tracing.
Now you have a cutout that is 1/8″ smaller, except at the very top. I like the look better, don’t you?
Using this tool tip, your top framelit will provide more room on which to stamp.
