The card base is Midnight Muse 21 cm x 14.8 cm ( normal half the A4 cardstock size ). I then cut another piece of Midnight Muse 10 cm x 14.3 cm and ran this through the Big Shot as shown
I used the Houndstooth folder which, I think, is quite manly. I placed the cardstock into the EF and I created a template using 2 x pieces of the backing board from the Glimmer Paper to place on the top of the EF. I added a couple of spots of Dotto just to keep it in place. You can make your template any shape you choose but it must be "chipboard" thickness ( 2 mm ). So you can glue together a few layers of the backing card from your Designer Series Paper (DSP) - I usually do 3 or 4 layers - or use this card from the Glimmer Paper. As each Big Shot is calibrated slightly differently do a test run first and adjust accordingly for your machine. The end result is........
Here is the finished card. The greeting is from the free sale-a-bration stamp set "Patterned Occasions" stamped on whisper white , then Summer Starfruit, Midnight Muse embossed with Houndstooth again and Cherry Cobbler at the bottom. The cupcake stamp is coloured using the 2012-2014 In Color Stampin' Write Markers - Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit and Raspberry Ripple.
and inside I used the greeting from the "Best Dad Ever" stamp set in the Annual Catalogue.
I hope you have lots of fun playing with this technique and create some wonderful designs
