Tutorial - reflection dies - Kianel

Hello dear friends,
Kianel here today to share a tutorial with you on how to get endless possibilities with your reflection dies. This tutorial can apply to any of the shapes or designs rectangle, coved rectangle and square.
Please do take a look at the fantastic videos Mike did for the store.
Let's work here with the Horizon coved rectangle mega doily die. So you have your reflection dies and i am going to show you how to adapt the dies to any size you want.

I made this card for a monthly card kit i am DTing for here in France and used the beautiful dies from Cheery lynn Designs to make all the diecuts.

I used the mini pearl square mega die to create my structure using this samle technique to adapt the size to my card. Cardmaker's stackers are always a must for me on this type of card combining layers.
I also used the Horizon coved rectangle mega doily die to have under my stamped image. On the right side, under the bow you can see one of the 2 of hearts die.

And here is a close up of the clustering with a mix of premade flowers and handmade flowers with Cheery Lynn Designs dies.  I used the medium rose and the miniature rose dies to build my flower. Under the premade flower, you can see the biggest of Judy's blooms and also the leaves that come along that i decorated with ink and some sewing marks. The tropical flourish is also there to adornate the flowers.
Papers are from "Fab Scraps", cute stamp is from "me to you" and is colored with Promarkers.

Cut your Horizon coved rectangle mega doily die in your paper. I used the size 2 of the set on that example.
On this picture you can see where the die would be placed to get the full size and that my paper is smaller than that.
Step 3
Move your die up so that all the details of the die match the details of your already cut paper. on the picture you can see the blue line on the die that marks the actual end of the first cut on the paper.
Here is the final result, same frame but smaller. Using this technique you can pretty much choose your own size for all your frames. It works with the reflection dies rectangle, square and coved rectangle because they have straight sides and you can match the die and the pre-cut paper. Make a square out of a rectangle, make a rectangle out of a square, etc...The possibilities are endless, litterally!
Now it's up to you to create all your frames and have fun with this technique, and always have the perfect size!

now just enjoy the tremendous possibilities of your dies and have a great week. Don't forget to come and play with us for the weekly challenge each monday and a chance to win a 20$ shopping spree.
Love from France, Kianel.
