Crafter’s Companion 2022 Advent Calendar door 19- See through easel card

Updated: Jan 13, 2023




For the 6x6 card today I used a laminator to enclose some of the die cuts for the center of a wreath. This can be done with any laminator. I bought mine awhile back on Amazon for about $20. This technique can be used for all sorts of things. I have put fake snow in a sheet and run it through and used it for a card front. Balloons are another die cut that works well. So look through your stash and see what you can do this with. The laminator sheet I used was 3 mil. I did have to use my electric Gemini to cut the sheet.
