Crafter’s Companion 2022 Advent Calendar door 11- partial die cutting

Updated: Jan 13, 2023

Today I used the contents of door 11 to make a card with partial die cutting. This technique can be used with any die in your stash. Basically you hang the part of the die you don’t want to cut off the edge of your cutting plate making an edged card.
