Wood Works


Did you know that the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine cuts fabric, thin metal and even thin sheets of wood?  Stampin' Up! offers wood sheets (5 3/4" x 13 3/4"), perfect for this purpose.  A quick ride with the Big Shot and the Stampin' Up! Lattice Bigz Die (a Stampin' Up! exclusive) produces the cool die-cut result above.

I created this card for Splitcoaststampers as part of my Dirty Dozen Design Team gig 🙂

  • My Modern Label Punch had no problem chomping through the wood sheets either.
  • A sliver of Old Olive card stock turns to coordinated "thread" on the buttons.
  • Mini Glue Dots keep the buttons firmly in place
