MIM #200

This week's Make It Monday challenge at Papertrey Ink is a great one.
This cover plate is the first die I've had from Papertrey Ink that didn't cut completely cleanly on the first pass - probably because it is so intricate. However, a metal shim and some patience with the Quick stik were all it took to get this beautiful die tamed.
I love how the two layers work together. I shall be playing with some other colour combinations as well. I was planning on using the "happy" die from Wet paints at the bottom, but, much to my surprise, I don't seem to own the Wet paint dies. How did that happen? I can only assume they were out of stock when I went to order them. I shall be putting that right as soon as possible! Wonderful words - Hello made a good substitute in the meantime, and the sentiment is from "Wishes come true".

  4. Lovely card and so glad to hear you had a bit of difficulty with this die. I too said it's the first PTI die (for me) that didn't cut completely through, after much trial and error I did finally get it to cut, just not as clean as they usually are.
    Thanks for sharing.

  7. What a beautiful card! I love the 2 layers of purples together and the added bling...really packs a punch! I just heard a tip about using 4 dryer sheets folded in half (so 8 layers) when using intricate dies makes them release like magic...haven't tried it myself yet, but thinking it might be worth a try! :0)
