Fusion of dies

Today I want to share a card where I have used a technique I call "Fusion of dies".
Basically I have used two dies to make only one die-cut and to do so I use the die-cutting technique "partial die-cutting".
Here is my card:

I have made a fusion of the polaroid die and the Happy word-die.

First I ran the polaroid die through my Big Shot, but made sure not to cut one side of the frame. I made sure to line up the edge of the polaroid frame so that it was just outside the Big Shot cutting plate sandwich.

Thereafter I placed the Happy word-die on my die-cut in order to cut the missing side of the polaroid frame and at the same time cut the Happy.

For the Birthday word die I have used the inlaid die-cut technique.

That is all for now in this amazing summer heat in Denmark. Today we reached 30 degrees celcius.....very, very warm compared to normal Danish weather standards.
