Creative Die-Cutting Ideas

Use Die Cuts as a Mask

Design by Vicki Boutin

Vicki inked her background, masking some areas with butterfly die cuts. She painted die-cut pieces and folded them to make it seem as if the butterflies were fluttering on the page.

Editor's Tip: Use solid and intricate die cuts in your scrapbook page layouts to create diversity.
