Fresh Freesia Prized Peony Sympathy Card

When I was designing the cards for my last stamp class I came up with a new edge effect using the largest Stitched with Whimsy Die. I'm calling it Easy Trick Point. I used my Paper Trimmer to cut the "V" point after I stamped the Peony and sentiment.

All you have to do is make sure only the two sides that need the stitching are under the die when you run it through your die-cutting machine. Make sure the top part of the basic white layer is threaded through the die and lays on top of the die so it won't accidentally get the stitching. You have a choice of which of the four corners of the die you use for your trick point. Each is a little different.

However, the ladies who made this card in class improved upon my idea. The ladies decided to fussy cut and mirror the stitched edge of the die. That result gave a much softer edge to this card design. So now you have two ways to do the edge on this card design.
