Join Lizzie Jones today as she shares some tips and trick to use die cuts to create negative designs in your stamped images:“I love using die cuts to create negatives in a stamped design, but sometimes the holes in the pattern leave unfortunate gaps that make the greeting illegible or the shape askew. My favorite way to help minimize those gaps is not only simple, but incredibly effective. A little sponging goes a long way, friends! I hope you’ll pop by my post today to see a few different ways to incorporate this simple technique!”
