How to die cut "congrats" (and ANY other word) with the Well Written dies from Stampin Up

Hi everyone,

Did you catch my blog yesterday where I showed you this card?

Meant to Be Stampin Up

To make the greeting I used the Well Written set of dies.

Meant to Be Stampin Up

I know it is not easy to see from the photo above, because all the dies are back to front. But if you look closely you will see that there is no "congrats". So how did I do it, you may be asking!

Well, I saw, that although there's no "congrats", all the letters needed to make the word are there in other words. So I took the "co" from "welcome", the "n" from "thanks, the "gr" from "groom", the "at" and the "s" from "sympathy". Tada!!! There you have it - a die cut "congrats".

See how I did it on this little video -  Just CLICK HERE or on the image below:


Then I started thinking about what other words I could made and decided it would be good to see which letters of the alphabet are available. The results really surprised me - nearly all the letters of the alphabet are there - the only ones missing are "j", "q", "x" and "z" - and not many words need one of those!
