Nesting dies are a great way to maximize your patterned papers. You can create embellishments and frames like what Iris did here. To add dimension to the paper frame, Iris used the same nesting die on a sheet of thin foam. She adhered the die-cut foam and paper together and used it to frame the photo of her two sweet girls.
Danielle used EK Success's 1 1/4" Scallop Square Nesting Punch to create a feature banner on her 'Chook Love' layout. Cutting each scallop square out of double-sided patterned paper meant that the punched squares, when folded diagonally but unevenly, showed two different patterns at the same time. Each banner flag appears to have a scalloped border as a result of this folding method showing both patterned sides of the paper.
Sizzix Framelits are a nesting style set of dies that allow you to easily create beautiful dimensional frames or layers that fit snugly within each other. They can be used in many different ways and suit scrapbooking, cardmaking and OTP projects. This week Leanne has had fun playing with the Sizzix Framelits Fancy #4 Label dies and has created three cards using the dies in a different way on each card.
For this card Leanne used the label die to create some unique pieces for the front of the card. By trimming the labels into sections you can create an edging for the label. You can also transform the label into bracket pieces to create a cute rectangular styles label shape.
Leanne used the Framelits dies to create cards that are uniquely shaped. The different sizes allow you to layer up the front of your card as each layer sits neatly in line with the last. Leanne also teamed them up with and oval die to make a feature label for embellishing.
Here Leanne used the label die to create a beautiful layered embellishment featuring a mounted frame. Embellishments and a sentiment were placed both inside the layered frame and on the mounted frame border.
