Black and White Thank You Card Tutorial

To make these cards, I used the Die'Sire Bordeaux corner and the Frantic Stamper Thanks card band.

I started off by placing the Bordeaux corner die on a piece of cardstock measuring 4 3/4 x 6 1/4 for this 5 x 6.5" card.  Two of the edges on the die that form the right angle have cut lines on them so they will detach from your paper but the diagonal line will not detach.  You would have to manually cut it in order to get a triangle.  I wanted to keep it attached for this card so I made sure the two cut lines were sticking out beyond my piece of paper when running it through the machine.

Below is how the card looks when cutting just the two Bordeaux corners and leaving them attached to the paper:

Next I placed the Thanks card band in the middle of the paper and ran it through the machine, being careful to center it both vertically and horizontally on the diagonal.

The "Thanks" also stays attached to the card.  You just manually cut along the top and bottom to remove the two side pieces from the card:

Now it's ready to mount onto the card base.  Add a few flowers and the card is done.

Products Used:  Die'Sire Bordeaux corner die, Frantic Stamper Thanks Card Band, MFT Die-Namics Flower and Leaf Trio (retired)
