Stampin Up Circle Thinlit & Owl Punch Card

I was so excited when Stampin Up came out with these Thinlit flip-it style cards.  Each thinlit comes with various accessory dies.  I was super excited when I figured out that the scallop that comes with the circle thinlit bundle is exactly the same as the largest scallop punch (which I did not yet own)

Using the circle thinlit bundle, I made this card using the owl punch.  It is a bit of a learning curve to figure out how to cut the second layer, but once I figured it out I was quite happy with the result.

Once I make a few more of these cards, I will be posting a tutorial using these thinlits.  Be sure to stay tuned for that!

TIPS & TRICKS (PART 1)

  • I have found that if you use a 12×12 sheet of paper you will have considerably less paper waste / scraps left over.
  • For the base, if you do NOT have a magnetic platform for your Big Shot, cut a piece of paper 1/8″ longer than needed
  • For the second layer – I cut the crumb cake at 5 1/2 x 5, then trimmed any excess of the top & bottom
  • You can use your 2 1/2″ circle punch for the middle circle – it will leave about a 16th of an inch space as you can see below
  • The scallop die is exactly the same as the 2 3/8″ scallop punch in the annual catalog
