This step-by-step shows how I created the above card, it features the Tonic Studios Large Layering Die – English Picnic. I love this die as it features a nice selection of different shaped and panel layering dies, such as a trellis and a flower pattern very similar to broiderie anglaise.
1. Firstly I cut the top, which is 7 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches in white card. Score a line at 1 inch around all sides, and cut a triangle at the corners where the two lines intersect. Do this on all four sides.
2. Then I cut the base of the box 2mm smaller. And again score a line at 1 inch around all sides, and cut a triangle at the corners where the two lines intersect. Do this on all four sides.
5. Place the larger patterned die onto the white rectangle and run through your die machine. You may have to turn it at 90 degrees and run back through your machine due to the delicate detail on the die.
6. Using the outer die of the smaller broiderie anglaise die cut 1 navy and 1 white rectangle.
