CDD Partial Die Cutting

Hello there!!!
I'm up on the Craftin' Desert Divas blog showing you a version of partial die cutting!!!

Below are a list of Craftin' Desert Divas supplies used to create this card.

Ok, let's begin...
Trim up a piece of cardstock 4 x 5 1/4, this will be the front panel. 
Use the stitched cirle die and cut 5 or 6 pieces of cardstock and adhere them together...one on top of eachother as to form a thick barrier.
Align the border die and tape to the panel. 
Flip panel over and tape the layered circle dies precisely where you want your window. The layered circles will allow you to run this thru the die cutting machine and only cut where the circle is. Run this thru the machine, back and forth, a few times.
Flip the panel over to the front view and remove the border die and layered circle barrier carefully!!!
Now place the stitched circle die exactly where you want your window. 
When you place the clear cutting pad over the metal die, do not cover the part you want intact.
It will come out like this...
You will need a craft knife to trim the corners by where the circle and border dies meet.
Place the die cut panel over your card base, 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 cardstock. Lightly pencil where the window is. This is the best time to add your sentiment. 
Cover up the sides of the card base so they are kept clean, free from any ink. 
Start inking the background.
When you are happy with your blending, add a few splats of white paint, allow to dry.
Assemble your card and add embellishments!!!

Don't you just love it!!!!
Hope you give it a try!!!
If you have any questions, just leave them in the comments and I'll be happy to answer you!!!
