One of My Techniques for Adhering Intricate Dies...


Pam here...I have a video for you today showing one of my techniques for adhering intricate dies.

            Embedded Diecuts



* I did take this in high definition so after you click play,  you can click the gear for a better picture and click the frame to see it large! *

Here’s my technique for making your die cuts into stickers for perfect placement.  I’m really pleased with how it works… so many of the fine line dies from Memory Box are easy to pull out of shape.  After trying several things, this is what I came up with!  I hope you'll try it too!

One thing I didn’t show in the video is changing the color of the petals.  It’s really easy though… just cut the die in the color card-stock you want the petals and adhere them over the top after the process I show in the video.

On my Tall Taper die card, I added the black pieces over the white after using the technique I show in the video.

  1. glue the musicality background die cut to the card base (little dots of Tombow Mono Multi behind the notes)
  2. die cut the tall taper die just like I did the plush poinsettia in the video
  3. while still in the die, (after removing the waste) lay it right over the top of the musicality background piece, run it through the Big Shot just like I did in the video
  4. remove the die
  5. die cut the contrasting tall taper parts that you want a different color and glue on (or make them a sticker too)



The holly is from the Cabrini Ornament die. Die cut and then trim the holly away from the ornament with scissors.

I have a couple more cards in this color scheme with MB dies if you want to click over to my blog, HERE.

Can't believe it's the end of August! eek! At least I have a lot of Christmas cards made! lol Hope you're making progress on the stash too!

Thanks for looking! and happy adhering!


This card is fabulous!!

Pam, excellent video. I have seen something similar using Press n' Seal by P&G. It too hold the positive die cut in place while transferring to the card stock. I intend to try both soon.

Your video was excellent and I learned some new techniques with the MB dies. I have so many of the MB dies and get frustrated with the small pieces and adhering them to paper. Your video answered a lot of questions I was going to ask you. I loved your last poinsettia card and wondered how you kept all those pieces together. Now I know. Thanks again.

WOW Pam, what a fantastic idea, will be using that one, thank you for sharing. A beautiful card also, hugs xxx

Exelent video here PAm, and some great advise too, for how to add these intrigant diecuts. Sooo much easier than to sit and glue them onto something,. I normally use my Zyron machine, but ofcause not all can go through there, so this is amazing I think.

Great video! Thanks!!!

Thank you Susan!

Thank you Carol Ann! I've never heard of Press n' Seal. Glad you're going to try them!

YAY! Thank you Shirley!

Thank you Avril and Margarita!

Fantastic technique/video! Thanks!!!

You're welcome and thank you Miriam!

A magnificent card, love the way the taper just pops out at you. Great video, learned a lot of useful techniques I cannot wait to try. Your other cards were stunning as well. You did a great job on the cards and the video.

Thank you Blue Rose!
