Nesting Die mat and layer card tutorial with Debby Robinson

Debby Robinson – 03/10/19

Nesting dies are fantastic tools to keep in your stash. They can work as individual dies to create easy embellishments, or together for mat and layer effects, or to create outlines, and a whole host of other uses! They really are that versatile and Debby Robinson is here to prove it.

We stock a wide range of nesting die designs, including shapes with fancy edges, but for today’s video, Debby has selected to use the Scalloped Heart Nesting Dies and the Stitched Circle Nesting Dies. These are two fun designs that will add incredible effects to any project that you choose to use them on. We just know that you’ll love the dainty stitching around the edge of the circles and the cute cameo-style scallops on the hearts!

Take a look at the video below and find out how Debby uses these sets to create a fun layered heart card design. It would be perfect for Valentine’s!
