I'm really excited to share my first Project of the Week with you for The House That Stamps Built .
Sanding the Edges of Your Die Cutouts.
Using just about any printed DP or solid card stock with a core color, such as white ( Tim Holtz has some solid color CS with a Kraft core) that works really great also. Pretty much the same way with embossing folders. Click on the photo for a closer view.
After you decide on your DP, cut and emboss using a die or dies. I used Spellbinders label #4 sm
then remove from the die, laying it flat, sand around the edges, I use a manicure filing block as I find it is easier to keep even sanding. The back panel I only embossed using blue painters tape to hold it in place and Spellbinders A2Matting Basics B. Remove the tape and die then sand as the front panel. For my card I put the die on the back side of the side I wanted to sand.
Here is a photo of the dies and sanding block.
I stamped the images out in Memento black ink and cut them out.
