Happy Thursday!!! Today, I have another one of Laura’s Quick Tips for you all! This one is on removing cardstock from your framelits/dies/thinlets. Sometimes the cardstock can get stuck in there and it is frustrating and sometimes results in it ripping when you try to take it out! Here are some tips to help you out!
There are 2 things that I like to use when removing cardstock from my dies. The first one is the Take Your Pick Tool which has a few different tips to use. My favorite is the “pancake flipper” end. When I have a die like the Stitched Nested Labels that holds the cardstock in each of those stitched holes along the edge, it can be difficult to get it out. If you punch it out quickly sometimes the stitching rips or you end up with pressure spots on the label. To help with this, I simply slide the pancake flipper under the edge all around and slightly rotate it so it’s popping the cardstock out. Keep working your way around the end die until the cardstock is out. This is much less frustrating and keeps the die cut cardstock all pretty!
The other tool I use is Post It Note tape. This is the perfect amount of sticky without ripping the cardstock. It comes out smoothly and can be used over and over. When die cutting the embossed leaves from the Gathered Leaves Dies, there are no holes in the dies to push out the cardstock if it gets stuck. Simply press the Post-It Note tape to the back and lightly tug. This will pull out the leaf perfectly intact!
I hope you found these super helpful and try them out yourself! If you have a fun tip that you would like to share, let me know in the comments below!
