Tip of the Week - Extending a Die Cutout

Did you ever have a die that was too short for your card? I wanted to use the lacy piece on a card and it needed to be 5 1/2 inches but the die was too short. What to do, what to do??? I decided to cut 2 pieces and hide where they met behind an embellishment.

See how short it is?

Cut a second one and place them with the seam where you can place an embellishment over it. Cut the excess pieces off and save them for another project.

Adhere an embellishment over the seam and no one will ever know it’s not one long piece.
