When is a hill not a hill? When it’s criss-crossed as a sophisticated stitch-effect background.



  1. Cut a panel of white card to fit your card blank.
  2. Lay one of the stitched hill dies across the panel diagonally as close to top right corner to bottom left corner as it’s long enough to go, secure with washi or memo tape and run through your diecutter.
  3. Move the die an inch or so out towards the bottom right corner. It’ll hang off the edges now – I put a scrap of the same card under one overhanging end to give my cutting plates a break, and wound it through til the other end of the die touched the die-cutting machine, then backed it out and put it through the other way round.
  4. Before removing the tape, flip the panel over for a quick check that it’s cut all the way across while you can still easily run it through again if needed.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 5, then rotate the card and do the same across the other diagonal so the stitched lines cross as shown.
  6. Stamp a sentiment and 3 small flowers, attach the panel to your card blank with double-sided tape then finish off with 5 dots of Glossy Accents.
