Make It Monday #93 - Splitting Die Cuts

This week for PTI's Make It Monday, Ashley Cannon Newell challenged us to split a die cut on a project. Her tutorial and more details can be found here.

The Mega Gracious Vases dies were still sitting on my desk after being used for the PTI Blog Hop card last week and I immediately thought about using one of them for a get well card. To be honest, sometimes when an idea comes so immediately to my mind, I question whether it has already been done and was filed away in the depth of my brain under the "future use ideas" (and apologies if this was your original design).

The designer papers are from Teresa Collins, a little lace trim from my stash and one of the sentiments from the Mega Mixed Messages inked with Memento Espresso Truffle round out the supplies.

Last week I used some of my ancient vellum supplies - this week a deckle edge pair of scissors!

I was sure I had a sentiment that said something about "healing" or "on the mend", but couldn't find either. Maybe it is time to make up an index file of my stamps so I don't waste valuable crafting time searching.

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. Oh Jacquie, this is so clever! Who would have thought to break those beautiful vases?! At least there's no mess, right? Fabulous idea!!

  2. Oh, this is really very clever. Such a fun idea, and great get well card.

  3. So clever. And you dug deep to find those scissors! LOL

  4. Are you kidding? This is such a fantastic die cut to split. better paper than real! Love the design of you card.

  5. You are so creative! This is the best idea yet! You are so clever! Your card is also very beautiful.

  6. Now that's thinking outside the box!

  7. Seriously, what better way to split a die than 'break' it?

  8. Feel like I'm copying every one else's comments, but this really is a clever idea! Smart thinking. :0)

  9. So very creative and I love the colors you chose to use to bring it all together. I highly recommend making a stamp index. I finally did and though it was a big task I use it and love it SO much! And it really does save a ton of time when you are on the hunt for something you know you have but just need to remember exactly where:)


It makes my day when you take time to comment - thank you!
