Tips and Tricks
Protecting the Focal Point
I love framing a card tone on tone. It gives it a little something without taking away from the central panel. Embossing the top layer of the base makes it stand out a little more but keeps it subtle.
Placing the Pearls
Pearls and other small, adhesive-backed embellishments (like rhinestones, sequins or enamel pieces) can be difficult to pick up and apply. I find the easiest method to do this is by using the tip of my Snips to pick it up off of the sheet, and then place it onto the project. This avoids the common problems of leaving the adhesive on the sheet which picking up and getting oil or dirt on the adhesive when moving to the project. I also find it increases the accuracy of where the embellishment “lands” on the card!
Preparing to Punch
Always turn your punch over so that you can see the image you are punching out. It’s pretty obvious in the case where a punch is made for a specific image like this vase, but it will also conserve your paper and ensure complete punches (no missing edges!) when you are simply punching a shape. Once it’s upside down, some people prefer to lay the punch on the table and some like to hold it in their hands. What works for you?
