Top Tip Tuesday – I’m Gutted! Did that get your attention? Happily I am not ‘gutted’, but I am going to talk about ‘gutting’. I guess the first thing to do is explain what I mean by ‘gutting’.
This is a process you can use if you want some very special paper or card to go further, so it is all about stretching your supplies. I use it in particular when I am using Foil Card or Glimmer Paper as a layer for a card. Basically all you need to do is cut a frame from your layer so you can use the middle piece on other projects.
But that is not all, the other way to save your precious card is when you want to use it behind a sentiment strip. Rather than cutting a piece large enough to peek out behind the top and bottom of the sentiment strip, just cut narrow pieces and stick them on the edge of the sentiment strip.
So, do you now understand why I’m Gutted? I want you to get the most out of your supplies and by following this simple process you will no longer be in the ‘I’m Gutted’ group, you will be in the ‘I’m Gutting’ group!! Come back tomorrow to see me put this into practice with a card for a Video Hop Group. I will be later posting tomorrow because of this, but I will still be posting.
