Die-Versions Dies DT Card

Hello Everyone,
My project is on the Die-Versions blog and I am so excited to show you the new die I have used for my card and I never used pop up card dies before and I am sure you will also love these dies. It is really fun to make your cards so unique. Sometimes it is hard to ship bulky and well decorated cards and if you want to make tones of them for events then it is hard. So here you go...your recipient will be happy to when they open this.
For this card I have used one of the new October release Dies





Here is my card...

















Here I am giving step by step picture tutorial for you how this works. But all the instructions came with the dies.

You can take any length card stock but width should have 6" or more. For this card I got 6 x 11 piece.
Then with your score board, score on 3 3/4 , on 5 and on 5 1/2




 Then fold all score line as per zigzag or accordion style,















Then line up your die in between 3 3/4 and 5 1/2 score line,
The tabs of the die should be towards 5 1/2 score line and actual letters are between 3 3/4 and 5 score line.



Then tun through your diecutting machine.


















You can cut both ends as per you want or you can keep them as it is.
then stick this part on your basic card stock which can be 6 X12. I just hold my basic paper in 90 degree or right angle and stick my diecut on. You need to see your die cut angle and adjust it.

Thanks so much and hope you like the card and find it easy to make.

Love,
Archana

Light up your crafty project in this festive season!

Dear All,
I always fascinated by lights, in my childhood I keep following fireflies. Here in USA I am seeing fire "flies" but we have fire caterpillars back in my home town, they are light green color and their tail has a light :-) and believe me they has particular smell too ...not bad one though :-)
I love bonfire. Sitting in front of fireplace is my all time favorite thing in winter time. I love decorating house with so many lights in Diwali and our Christmas tree is always glowing with variety of lights. I am a collector of candles and old oil lamps. I enjoyed power outage situation a lot in my childhood and that time there were no computers to worried about. I was waiting when my mom will burn some candles and we gather together around that tiny candle and talk about beautiful memories and sometime scary tales....LOL 
Ok enough chatting....:-)
Here is my most requested canvas. This time I created 10X10 instead of 12X12.
