Cut away image

This is a fun technique that I found online, but I don’t remember where I saw it. If you know who I should give credit to, please let me know!

Start out by stamping your image and finding the nestabilities die you want to use. Place the nestabilities die on your image so that the cutting bar is facing up.

Lightly trace with your pencil around the portion of your image you want to hang over the cutting edge.

Cut around the image, right up too the pencil line. Make sure you do not cut away any of the extra paper from around the very edge of your image next to the pencil mark.

Slide your nestabilities die back into place as shown in the image below with the cutting bar facing down. Line up the pencil line with the inner edge of your die.

Run the die through your machine of choice.

Erase the pencil line and add to your project of choice.

And there you go! This really is a fascinating technique and adds a special touch to any card or scrapbook page. If you have any questions, or know who I can credit, place drop me a note!
