Positive & Negative Hi

I finally got around to playing with the Thinlits Label Card Die - fun fun fun...!  I created two cards using the positive and negative pieces.  And I'm sorry you can see that the light in my stamping room was different between yesterday and today!

First I used the die on the 6 x 5.5 piece of cardstock which they give the instructions for.  I used the punched out "hi" and the largest arrow in the set along with the label and "i heart u" die for the flipside of the label.

For the second card, I used a piece of 8.5 x 5.5 cardstock and shaved off 1/16 from the long edge so that it fit into the die easily.....I slipped the paper under the label section making sure that it the righthand end of the paper rested OVER the die so it wouldn't get cut.

Because the paper still received pressure from going through the Big Shot - there is a "score line" available to fold the flap into your card giving extra space to write messages.....

So - when I created the second card, I used the "negative" space from the "hi" with a piece of Island Indigo underneath.  I stamped the front of the flap
and decorated the inside a bit - still leaving space for writing inside the card.

I do love these thinlits  - especially all the little bits that are included with each.

To get yours you can shop at my on-line store, use this weeks Hostess Code   (UDFPW9MK), and I will send you three cards using the Thinlits dies.  Woo Hoo!   The Hostess Code and this offer are good until September 14.

Don't forget today is MDS download day too!
Hope your Tuesday is Terrific!
