Cards and Other Projects using Die Cuts

Happy Monday everyone! Today we kick off our week with die cuts. What are die cuts? Die cuts are shapes or as I to refer to them as (since I'm a big bake) the cookie cutters for scrapbookers, card makers, and other crafters. With the right die cut, you can tie your entire project together to complete your story or theme. Die cuts can be cut by an electronic machine (i.e Cricut, Silhouette), by hand, or with a manual die cut machine (i.e. Cuttlebug, Sizzix Big Shot). The best part about die cuts is what you do with them after you've cut them...distress them, color them with pens and markers, stamp on them, paper pierce them together, or decorate them with your favorite bling. Check out our favorite cards and altered projects submitted using die cuts...
