Using a Die Backwards

It’s Technique Tuesday! Today I want to show you how to use a die backwards.

For the Candy Canes Dies there is a striped decorative background plate that I had to figure out how to make an argyle pattern. So I cut the Parakeet Party ones normally making sure to place an Adhesive Sheet behind the card stock before running through the Machine.

Then on the Tahitian Tide ones instead of cutting them with the Adhesive Sheet on the back I cut them on the front. That simple flip made the stripes go the other way. Then as I glued them down the stripes were going from right to left as well as left to right. I achieved my argyle look.

When you try this technique please post your finished projects on my page at

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
