In this video tutorial I demonstrate how I put my Elegant Post die template with sign together. I also explain the difference between Spellbinders S4-190 Labels Four and S4-309 Labels Four SM die templates, and why you will love owning both of these label sets.

I’m thrilled to share S4-319 Lattice Rectangles, a new Nestabilities® Decorative Elements die template, with you...
I chose to make a Valentine’s card to show off this wonderful new set: S4-319 Lattice Rectangles!
I used 3 of the 4 die templates on my card. Can you pick them out?
Are you wondering how I got a square card with a rectangle die cut?
Let’s see the steps…
First, cut a white card with LF-161 Grand Labels One. The Grand die templates are great for this! I used a 5 ¼” x 10 ¼” piece of Worldwin White card stock folded in half. I positioned LF-161 Grand Labels One #2 (the smallest being #1) so that part of the fold was inside the cutting edge.
You can see the die template peaking out along the fold….
and ready to be cut with LF-161 Grand Labels One #2 taped in place.
The next step is to cut and emboss the pink mat out of 3M Post-It Craft Paper. This color is called Bashful. Use the same LF-161 Grand Labels One #2.
It's easy to follow the embossed line is for cutting.
It’s a little too big to fit completely on the Flourish Impressabilities so do half at a time.
Here’s a list of the die templates and paper colors to cut: S4-319 Lattice Rectangles #4 - Cardinal Red Worldwin card stockS4-136 Classic Heart #2 - Cardinal Red Worldwin card stock S4-319 Lattice Rectangles #2 – White Worldwin card stockS4-137 Classic Scalloped Heart #3 – White Worldwin card stockS4-319 Lattice Rectangles #3 – strip of White Worldwin card stockS4-136 Classic Heart #3 - Bashful 3M Post-It Craft PaperS4-137 Classic Scalloped Heart #2 – Bashful 3M Post-It Craft Paper
Next, emboss the red and white Lattice Rectangles. At the same time, emboss the pink and red hearts laid over 12-1009 Flourish Impressabilities. They all fit easily on the mat. Sand both embossed hearts and edges of pink scalloped heart.
Sanding the red heart accents the embossed pattern by slightly changing the color.
Stamp “with Love” on a scrap of Bashful paper with Versafine Black Onyx ink. Heat emboss it with clear embossing powder. Position S4-319 Lattice Rectangles #1 over “with Love” and tape the die template in place for cutting. (It really is stamped with black ink. The shine makes it look metallic in my photo!)
After cutting and embossing it, sand the edges to reveal the embossed pattern.
Here you see how both pieces folded look after folding. Trim the straight edge of the white piece to about 3/8” from the fold so it will fit into the tiny pocket on the red lattice “square”.
Next, stamp “for You” at the bottom of the red lattice with Versafine Black Onyx and heat emboss it with clear embossing powder.
And that’s how to get a square out of a S4-319 Lattice Rectangle die cut! It makes a cute Valentine’s Card, don't you think?
