Hello happy stampers.
Today I wanted to tell you all about the Rectangle Stitched Framelits which were introduced in the 2019 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue. They are a fabulous versatile bunch of rectangle Framelits that can be used in so many ways, including with our metric card measurements.
Rectangle Stitched Framelit Dies - Item 148551 (find them HERE in the online store)
There are 13 dies in the set, and one of the things I love MOST about them, is the the stitching is on both the piece that is cut out, and the piece that is left behind. The largest rectangle is 13.3cm x 19.8cm. There are so many versatile shapes for layers, feature stamped panels and even for sentiments.
Here's a range of different ways these Framelits work with various card sizes available in Australia.
For this first card I have used them with our Narrow Notecards and Envelopes. A great fit for these.
They are also a great fit for our note-cards and envelope sets that come in either Whisper White or Very Vanilla.
Next up I have used them to create a frame around a cut out rectangle, on the Delightfully Detailed note cards and envelopes. These cards are sized the same as our note-cards and envelopes.
The rectangles can also be used as stamped panels or layers on cards, as I have used on this card. I really like how the stitching works gives that extra bit of interest around the edges. These cards are the Memories and More card bases, which coordinate with the Happiness Blooms Memories and More cards.
The Rectangle Stitched Framelits also work really well with the silver and gold edged note-cards and envelopes which are carried over from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue. I like how the stitching looks on our foil cardstock on the inner layers as well.
These last two projects are made using our standard C6 size cards (half A4 and then folded). Even though the rectangles are not perfectly sized for our card fronts (as opposed to US sized cards), in my opinion they still work really great.
On this card I have used a frame and added some elements slightly overlapping, so you can't even tell there is any difference in measurements in my opinion. I also like the idea of having a small gap at the base of the card for additional sentiments if I wanted to add them as well (in that case I would have moved the frame up a little on the card).
For this last card, I have used the rectangles as a focus for my stamped image. This card made me smile while I was making it because that's exactly what my cat Teddy does with my bakers twine if I accidentally leave it lying around. Right now he is innocently sleeping at my feet though.
So I hope that has shown you lots of different ways to get great value from the Rectangle Stitched Framelit dies. They are definitely a must have in your Framelit stash in my opinion. (find them HERE in the online store).
