Lisa Horton Background Collection Stitched Boxes Dies 2 Pieces
Glue a piece of white card, trimmed to 11 x 16cm, to the front of the card blank.
Die cut the complete Stitched boxes die set from black card, saving all the cut outs. Hold the dies in position as they make their way through the die cutting machine using a small piece of low tack tape (washi tape is ideal).
Top tip: Work over a piece of scrap paper so that excess flake can be saved for future projects.
Select some of the cut outs for gilding: the process is the same for each colour of gilding flakes. Apply a coat of Flake & Glitter glue using a small piece of Cut n’ dry foam. Sprinkle Gilding Flakes all over the surface of the cut out, pressing them into the glue layer. Allow to dry slightly. Rub across the surface to secure the flakes and remove the excess.
Top tip: Use tweezers to make positioning the panels easier.
Place foam pads on the back of the black frame and secure to the centre of the white card. Glue each of the gilded panels into place gently pushing them through the relevant aperture within the frame.
Die cut the ‘Thank You’ greeting from gold cardstock and glue to the bottom right-hand corner of the frame.
