This past summer, I purchased a Crafter’s Companion bundle of double cut Edge’ables and I put them aside to attempt to figure out how to use them until yesterday. So the first issue I have is that I do not have a Gemini die cutting machine but rather use my Big Shot which has a smaller cutting plate than I believe the Gemini does. With that said I think these dies were made for not only their machine using special plates and for larger card sizes especially since these are double cut dies that will cut the image on one side of the die on the edge of your card to create the edgeable design and then you can use another color cardstock on the other side of the die and it will cut out both sides of the die with one pass. Well that’s pretty neat but until I figure out a suitable sandwich for my Big Shot I’ll will be using old cutting plates to cut the die twice. Sorry for babbling…hope you can figure out what I meant:) OK after saying all of that, I can use opinions on the top card which is a regular A2 size and the one below which was trimmed to a slightly smaller A2 size to match the die ends.
My next dilemma is where do I put my inside sentiment or message?
As you can see not a lot of room to write a personal message or include a stamped one. I would add a sentiment to the front and maybe use plain not patterned paper. So I am looking forward for all your advice and opinions.
Hugs from a snowy preview of what’s to come later this week in Pennsylvania.
