Let's take a look at more examples of how to dress up your die cuts!

Julia's lush and layered card incorporates a whole bunch of die cuts, but take a look at what she did with the Let it Snowflake Die-namics. By cutting the snowflakes from felt and adding buttons, the design becomes extra touchable and dimensional. So pull out some non-paper materials and see what you come up with!

Patterned paper is a fast, easy, and super impactful way to add interest to your die cuts. Our guest designer Anja used the Big Hello Die-namics to create this clever Christmas greeting.

Big die cuts like the pot and cups from the Tea Party Die-namics beg to be dressed up. Yoonsun added gorgeous details with the Bold Blooms stamp set and a little bit of sparkle with a Wink of Stella brush. I'd love a spot of tea from a set as pretty as this!
