Layer Dies to Make a Frame – Card Details

Create cards just like this one using the Sailing Home Bundle (stamp set + coordinating dies). Die cuts are so much fun and are great for adding both interest and dimension to your cards. There are different ways you can use die shapes but today I’ll be giving you some best tips for cutting dies that you can stack to create a frame.

One thing I love about the card I’m demonstrating today is that it makes a great men’s birthday card or with the greetings in this Sailing Home bundle you aren’t limited to just birthday cards. This handmade card could easily be used as an encouragement card, retirement card, or tailored for many other occasions too.
