Partial die-cutting

I needed a few cards for sending New Year's wishes. I have collected a few tutorials on partial die-cutting and now was the time to try it out. In a way it was quite easy, although the first attempt failed! The plate was over the pencil line and so the numbers were die-cut completely...
 I used Lawn Fawn's Finley's Numbers, kraft cardstock and a gingham background. At first it looked a bit boring, so I stamped here and there on the cardstock, added some embellishments, but it didn't work. That's why I kept the card very simple, it was the most beautiful way. I adhered the front panel with foam tape to give it some dimension. 

Want to make a card like this? Check out this tutorial by Jennifer McGuire. She explains it very clearly and her cards are beautiful with that border. Should find some dies like hers as well :)

Thanks for coming by and enjoy your day!
