Outside the Frame with Kate.

This tutorial is from one of my DT girls, Kate, over on I ♥ ProMarkers. Kate says she can't take all the credit for this tutorial as she saw it elsewhere, but this is her version. I'm sure lots of you will find this very useful, I know I certainly will.

Firstly lay your nestie on top of your image where you want it to cut .
Draw lightly around the inner edge of your die up to where the overlapping part of your image will be.
Remove your die . cut around the part that you want to overlap . On this image it is the bottom of her dress .Cut up just past your pencil lines to allow for the edge of the die .
Now put your die back in place , lining it up carefully with your pencil marks, bring the overlap part of your image through the die so that it sits on top of the die instead of under it . this is why you had to cut beyond your pencil lines .
Put back through your machine , securing with low tack tape .
Now you can rub out your pencil lines and mount again on another layer if you wish.

Briliant Kate, thanks so much! Why not pop over to Kates BLOG and see some of her lovely work.
