Yesterday I shared a couple of cards I made with the “thanks” Thin Cut and today I’d like to show you another fun way to use your Thin Cuts. This time I used strips of Shimmer Trim to make a colorful and dramatic “hello” cut.
I used the whimsical Dreamin’ Big paper collection to make this card. The black mats make the colorful paper stand out even more. Black, Aqua, Gold and Red Shimmer Trim were chosen to coordinate with the colors in the paper.
I adhered layers of Shimmer Trim to a scrap of white cardstock, then positioned the Thin Cut over the strips and ran it through my Cuttlebug. The paper and Shimmer Trim were quite thick, so I had to run it back and forth several times. In the future I will put the Shimmer Trim strips on a piece of thin paper like vellum instead of cardstock.
The resulting cut is quite festive and fit nicely with the bright colors in the Dreamin’ Big paper. I’m sure I will use this technique again very soon!
