Just beautiful!! May I ask what die cutting machine is used, specifically for cutting flaps from your pre-made cards? I have a big shot and I don't think your 5 by 6-1/2 inch cards will fit through it. Unless your clever designers have a trick up their sleeves to make it work?

Gail says: The Cut 'N' Boss Embosser & Die Cutter, #4008421, has an 8 1/2" wide cutting bed, and that is an easy option.

If you have a die-cutting machine that has a 6" wide cutting bed, like the Big Shot which is what we use, here are some other options:

1 - Use 5 1/2"x6 1/2" cardstock, use the dies to cut the edge you like on a 6 1/2" edge (but you'll run the 5.5" side into the machine). Then score a 1/2" tab on the opposite side and attach onto the back of a 5"x6 1/2" cardstock.

2 - Open a 5"x6 1/2" blank card and place with the fold running vertically. Use stencil tape to secure your cutting die along the left edge of your card, with the cutting blade against the cardstock (this is the inside of the front panel). Place one or two scrap pieces of cardstock inside your card and close your card like a sandwich with the fold on the left (now the cutting die is underneath the front panel with the cutting blades facing up). Run this through your die-cutting machine between the cutting plates (adjusting shims as necessary to accommodate the extra cardstock layers). This will cut the front panel of your card only. It may leave an imprint of the outer edges of the die on the back card panel, but this can be covered with paper afterwards, if you like.

I have been waiting for these dies, but the stamps are a true bonus, especially the Christmas set. Wow., stunning cards.

Oh, you bad girls! I vowed I wouldn't spend any money for the rest of this month and then you put on the Christmas Flaps and Cutting Dies webisode. I couldn't believe how beautiful the cards were and loved the tip about using the die to make a bauble and rounded ornament. You are the greatest!

Trying to find the 3d Christmas Lace Paper Tole and it keeps coming up as an error. Would love to make this card for Christmas if I can find this CHristmas Paper Tole!

The item number is linked incorrectly. If you'll use 4008043 that will take you to the correct item. Since it is the weekend, this will be fixed on Monday. We're very sorry for the inconvenience.

Clever Teresa! I love the ideas you always give us. That tip for backing poinsettias is a real time saver. Thank you Gail and Paulette.

When Paulette says towards the beginning of the video that there is no special prep needed for silicone stamps, I wondered what she meant?
Reply from Paper Wishes Customer Service:
Some other types of stamps need to be conditioned by rubbing them with sandpaper and our silicone stamps don't need that step.

Great stuff, Teresa & everyone else. I had intended to start making Christmas cards in July, but you know how good intentions always get pushed back. Now, I will have more tools to use once I finally get started.
