Precision Layering Basics with Jennifer Kotas

Hello! My name is Jen Kotas and I’m so happy to be on the Spellbinders blog today. I’ve got three cards to share with you made using the new Precision Layering Basics Dies. What wonderful sets of basic dies to ensure straight edges and perfect measurements every time.

When using the A and B sets together to make a 1/16” frame, you’ll need to die cut them separately. I found it easier to cut the smaller die first, then line up the larger one and cut. It is possible, however, to cut the larger one first.
