Design is just SO gorgeous! I don't have a die-cut machine to use these fabulous plates with, but no way was that going to stop me from trying out Giga. So I came up with a solution of dry embossing with the plate and a stylus from a rub-on package.
I taped a piece of Hawaiian Shores to the plate and used the stylus to outline the image - just like you would if you were dry embossing. By taping the paper on the sides, you can easily lift up the edges to see the die underneath and know where to rub. Even if you rub outside the lines, you'll still get a crisp and clean image as long as you're making deep rubs right on top of the edges of the plate. I finished off the card using Year of Flowers: Daffodils and Background Basics: Tin Types stamps.
Be sure to check out what the fabulous other PTI designers did with the fun dies and plates!!!
Thanks again to Nichole for letting me guest... it was an amazing experience! :)
