Lying the word die from the Joy Dies set flat on my crafting surface, I very gently pressed my Versamark Ink Pad over the top so I'm only applying ink to the raised cutting edge of the die. I carefully placed the inked die, cutting edge down, onto a piece of card stock and ran this through my Cut & Emboss Machine using the 'sandwich' that you use for embossing. However, placing an embossing mat between the cardstock and bottom cutting plate will allow the die to leave an impression rather than cutting through.
Careful not to move the die once it has been placed down. I used a little bit of washi tape to help hold it in place.
I also added a few small white dots from the All The Trimmings Embellishments to give a little more interest.
For the centre of my cards, I glued a piece of Whisper White card stock inside with a strip of matching DSP that had been left over from the sheet to the bottom edge. This is a great use of any scraps and finishes off the inside of your cards beautifully.
