  • Spellbinders die templates (Classic Scalloped Borders Petite, Blossom, Big Scalloped Circles, Classic Circles)

Instructions:

One of the fun discoveries I have made with Very Square images, is the ability to cut images from the backgrounds and make your own embellishments. Each of the squares measures 1.75” x 1.75,” giving you some space to cut or punch shapes, on the small side, but as you can see in the cards above, perfect for card size!  I made a video to show you how to cut shapes from your images. I am calling it Placement Cutting, for lack of a better term!
 

 

With Card 2, here is another peek at the same technique. On this flower, I cut into the center, like on the video. It gives the flower some more dimension. Oh and just to note-the scalloped border is felt cut with a Borderabilities. Loving that! :)
