Die-cutting Essentials 45 Masterclass bonus guide
If you’re a crafter, you’re probably no stranger to combining stitches with paper – but some of us have got a fear of the sewing box that just won’t quit!
Which is why we love Ingrid Vichova’s stunning Masterclass in the new issue of Die-cutting Essentials magazine.
Check out the stunning stitched die-cuts she’s made for us…
There’s an expert step-by-step guide in issue 45 where Ingrid walks you through creating the ‘Hi’ card that’s just perfect for beginners.
But for those of you who feel a little more advanced, we’ve got a special extra step by step right here.

1 Die cut the Mega Ampersand out of a copy paper and add a touch of a two-way glue here and there and let it dry to make a mask.
2 Adhere the mask and stamp the background on top.
3 Remove the mask, replace it with the metal Mega Ampersand die and run it through the machine.
4 Follow the embossed design on the card to make tiny holes with a pokey tool.
5 Embroider all around the ampersand following the perforated dots.
6 Secure all loose threads on the back with a tape and the panel is ready to be added to your card.
Follow the same direction of a cross stitch across the whole design for a neat look
We’re so in love with this look – and hope you are too!
