BONUS Uniko card from Die-cutting Essentials 52

If there’s one thing more exciting than the impending summer, it’s the newest issue of Die-cutting Essentials magazine.

Issue 52 hits the shelves on Thursday May 23rd, and it’s got so much going on, I can barely believe it.

It comes complete with your gorgeous new dies – the Creative Corners 4-piece set.

Perfect for men and for women!

Sue Hughes has created female cards you will love….


And Sandra Rayner’s used a male palette and the tiled portion of the dies to make something so special.

Check out that paper piecing!

The rest of the magazine is just as packed, with features from Crafter’s Companion, Joanna Sheen and and Sizzix.

And we’re thrilled to be able to offer you this BONUS exclusive blog card – called Bloom – from Uniko.

2 On the white panel, stamp the heart wreath from the Additions set in Olive, then use the co-ordinating dies to dry-emboss the outer and inner outlines of the heart.

3 Stamp and die-cut flowers and buds as shown, adhering to the card front around the wreath as shown using 3D foam pads. Stamp the sentiment and embellish with smaller dotted stamps and Nuvo Drops to finish.


Can’t wait to see how all you crafty die-cutters get on with this – and with the rest of the issue.
