Partial Diecutting ft Mama Elephant ‘Little Cat Agenda’

Yes, it is possible to create a full size card using 2 very tiny stamps, especially if you create a very cool word-border feature, like I have here, with the partial diecutting technique.  Sure, you can buy dies especially to make this type of border, but this techniques creates yet another use for your word dies (shaped dies work brilliantly too!).  So let’s play with Mama Elephant today, specifically Little Cat Agenda, Hello Script die and Three Amigos.
