Stretching A Die Cut

This Monday has crept up on me and once again it's my turn to post here on the blog. Last week, I showed you how to use bits and pieces of your die cuts and this week, I'm going to show you how to "stretch" one.

I used the 5 5/8" x 5 5/8" French Flair die on this 8x8 layout to highlight this photo of my son on the day of his Kindergarten graduation.

The die cut was a little shorter than I wanted, so I cut the bottom portion off and then adhered the entire piece as shown below. I adhered a strip of striped patterned paper over the gap and then added the rest of the elements to my page as normal.

Below are the products that I used on this layout:
