It's Day Five of JustRite Week at Stamper's Dream. Hope you've had a chance to follow along with all the gorgeous projects this week! Today, Cammie, Kimberly, and Michelle are also sharing JustRite projects.
I thought it would be fun to use the "Let It Snow" oval border and center from Christmas Joy as the letter "O" in the word "snow." The other letters are from my chipboard stash. The patterned papers are all from the Merry Days of Christmas Paper & Accessories Kit by My Mind's Eye.
Here's a tip you may find helpful. When I was die-cutting the oval center with my oval Nestabilities, I couldn't be sure the image was perfectly centered under the die. See below how the die covers the perimeter of the stamped image?
Here's what I did. I took a larger oval die (one large enough that the smaller die would fit inside) and centered it around the image. Since its opening is larger, I could see the full image and therefore center it.
Then I centered the smaller die within the larger die and ran it through my die-cutting machine.
Anybody have other ways to do this?
Thanks for visiting! See you tomorrow for a fun Sketch For You To Try!
