Challenge #12 | Die Cuts {avery elle}


Happy Friday and welcome to another challenge for the AEI♥U Challenge blog. This week we are working with dies and die cuts. 

I made two cards, one where I showcased the negative of the die and another where I used the positive cuts.


I have always loved the layered look, and using die cuts is one way to make the layers the focus of your card. In this case, I have a clean, simple geometric card using one shape layered in different sizes.


One of the most eye-catching parts of this card is how many layers of paper there are on the front of the card — I just love the side view.



For this second card, I didn't share it on the Avery Elle blog because it is already popped in the mail and on its way to someone who needs some sunshine and smiles. This is where I used the positive cuts from the die I used in the card above. Nothing goes to waste.


I love the simple look for a card that is sending a hug and words of support.


Supplies: Die: Rounded Diamonds Elle-mentsThanks A Bunch Clear Stamps
