Hello everyone! Welcome to this week's video. Today I will use a new metal die from Amazon.com to make an awesome A2 card. The cross metal die actually cuts out two images: the positive cut out creates an open cross with flowers and the negative cut out creates a solid cross. You can use one or both die cuts on your card. The "Cross Flowers Lace Love" die is medium weight and can cut regular paper and cardstock. The die cuts are stunning in their simplicity. Let's get started...
