Our Daily Bread designs' Brocade Borders Custom Cutting Dies!

Happy Wednesday, everyone! Yesterday I shared some of my stamping secrets, both on my blog and on the Our Daily Bread designs blog for "Time With Angie". Today I am sharing with you how to use the new custom cutting dies from Our Daily Bread designs which cut out the new Brocade Borders stamp set perfectly!

The first step is to stamp one of the Brocade Borders.

Each cutting die from the Brocade Border Die Set comes with a clear template in order to line up the cutting die perfectly over the stamped border.

Line up the template over the image. While holding the template in place, use a pen to mark each hole as a guideline for your die.

Place the cutting die cut-side down, lining up and centering the placement holes. I use scotch tape or post-it notes to hold the die in place so that it cuts correctly.

Run this through your favorite die-cut machine...I do use an extra layer of cardstock as a shim. Here is a photo of the result....isn't it awesome!? No more fussy cutting!! I love it!

And here is a repeat view of my card from yesterday's "Angie's Stamping Secrets" post. I split up the tutorials into two posts in order to keep your attention! lol!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Stay tuned tomorrow for another Bible Verse Thursday/Stamping In Time challenge combo!! Have a blessed day!

Hi Angie~

I just saw the right up on the ODBD blog about the paper piercing! I learned a lot. Thanks for doing it! I wanted to let you know that if you use the back of a "mouse" pad...instead of the little mat, it works also...just don't hit the table!

I loved your most common suggestions! I am so bad at math. I measure on my Crafter's Companion Paper Cutter...but whenever I go to place ends up crooked. No Matter What! So, that is terrific advice to give!

He IS Able,
Traci S.
