With this set of cards I added another technique I had not tried before. In this you lay the diecut on the image and lightly mark where the image extends beyond the cutting edge. A craft knife is used to trim along the image up to that mark and then those portions are lifted on TOP of the die with the rest of the image under the die. Through the machine it goes and then all those extension areas are fully trimmed.
The first impression is one of those too-light ones. I mounted it on a green with a subtle pattern and added a die-cut greeting.
I used the same image and diecut technique, changed up the coloring a bit, and mounted to a text-print background. This one got a stamped sentiment on paper that matches the flowers.
Like the technique of cutting but need to use some better-stamped images to make it really work.
