Breast Cancer Awareness Stamp Set and Card is what we have for you today.
Did you know that approximately 1 out of 8 women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer in their lifetime? This is approximately 12% of women in the US.
I don’t know anyone that doesn’t have someone they know or a loved one that has Breast Cancer or Cancer in one way or another. Both my Paternal and Maternal Grandmothers had breast cancer and sadly numerous people effected with other cancers as well. PLEASE get your yearly mammograms and go to your doctor regularly for your yearly check ups.
It really makes a difference.
OK, now I am off of my soap box… onto the creativity.. Are you ready? Let’s get started!
Supplies Needed for the Breast Cancer Awareness Card
Manual Die Cut Machine
Doily Die By Kaiser Craft
Rectangle Stitched Die by Kaiser Craft
3 in 1 Tool by Spellbinders
Chameleon Pen PK3
Pink Paper for Doily
White Card Base
White Paper for Sentiment and Gloves
I use this precision platform to help me with the intricate dies.
Previously I had thought it was magnetic, it is not. The magnet I used to test it was though.. Yeah.. I am serious. It has been a fun couple weeks.
Anyhow, this platform has helped with the detailed dies but I am still having to run it through a few times to be sure it has cut. I do seem to have better luck with my magnetic platforms.
First, we are going to use our Sizzix manual die cut machine and die cut with our two dies. Place your standard platform on your machine and then place your precision platform on top of it.
Put the paper you are going to use for your Breast Cancer Awareness Card and place your die cut down on top of the precision platform.
Place your die on top of the paper.
Put your clear platform on top of your die.
Run your die through your machine.
Run it back through your machine just to ensure proper cutting.
This is what the doily die looks like once it has been cut and removed from the machine.

Take out your rectangle die with stitching.
Place your paper under your die, making sure it is centered. Put it on top of your base platform and precision platform on your machine.
