Partial Die Cutting Zig Zag Card

Welcome to Technique Tuesday – the day of the week where I show you how to create a card using a new technique! This week, I’m using Partial Die Cutting to create this lovely card with Butterfly Basics!

This card is really simple to make. The trick comes when running your die cutting sandwich through your Big Shot. Create your die cutting sandwich as normal – Magnetic Platform, Cutting Plate, card stock, die – but position your top cutting plate carefully – aligning the edge of the plate with where you want your die cut to stop. Remember your die will only cut where there is pressure – no plate = no pressure! Check out the video to see what I mean.


Cut a piece of A4 card in half, and fold in half to create your card base. Then open your card base, and mark a centre line down the inside front cover. Stamp your butterflies down this line – using a Stamp-a-ma-jig to ensure correct positioning.

Create your die cutting sandwich, lining up your die with your stamped butterflies, and lining the edge of your top place up with your centre line. Run this sandwich through your Big Shot. Repeat for all three butterflies, before finishing the card by stamping the insides or adding any desired embellishments.
