I love the Angela Poole Magic Windows Slide & Reveal die set. Will it work with photos?
Louise Carr, Wetherby
Angela says: Yes, but don’t use actual prints, print your photos onto 120gsm paper first. Using the cropping circle die, die-cut the photo and greeting to size then stick the circles onto 200-220gsm card. Next, position the Circle Slider and Tab Slider dies centrally over photo and greeting and hold in place with washi tape. I’ve die-cut part of the tab again in mirror card to make a contrasting tab. Die-cut two champagne glasses using the small Circle Topper die. With two strips of double-sided tape next to each other on a piece of thick card, position the donut over the tape before die-cutting. To construct the Magic Window, thread the tab through the curved slot in the Circle Slider piece and move the tab to the right. Lift each of the tab flaps and insert them into the corresponding slots below. As you do this you’ll notice a star shape appearing in the centre. Turn the Magic Window over to attach the donut to the back and then fold in the arms of the brad and thread it through the hole from back to front. Attach the circle topper. Back the Magic Window with mirri card and add to a 200mm base card that's layered with patterned papers. Embellish the card to finish. Slide the tab from left to right and the Magic Window will switch between the greeting design and the photograph!
