Press and Seal Technique

Press and seal 2

Margaret Hall over at www.margaretsstampingstudio.com taught me this awesome technique so I decided to share too. I loved sharing this at my team meeting along with the Love it Chop it with my team members. Interested in joining Stampin' Up! this is the month to do it. Check out my Stampin' Up! page for more details.

Cut all the images you want out of the DSP.

Assemble on a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of Whisper White Cardstock. Do not adhere.

Press a piece of press and seal on top of the assembled top.

Turn piece over and cut off everything that overhangs edges of whisper white cardstock.

Run through the die cut machine with the Rectangle die.

Separate the inner piece from the outer piece.

Move the inner piece to the side.

Flip frame piece over and carefully remove cardstock.

Add mini dimensional to pieces on the press and seal.
