Using dies for frames

This one has ribbon threaded through the slots, it sits nicely where the little slits have occured when the die was narrowed
You can see the 'slits' here
This one was made longer than the die by rolling halfway through and then turning, lining it up and cutting the rest from the other end
This one was a straightford cut, inked at the edges, embossed with a ball tool at the edges and removed from die which was then used as a pattern and cut around, giving another piece to layer on.

These are a collection that I have made as samples for using Dies to make toppers and how to frame them with inks and dies and to show embossing without the need of mats.   The are not personalised as they will go into the"nearly ready" box for use later
