All the Ways to Use the Around the Loop Dies and Fancy Loop Dies


As part of the Forever Extras Bundle, we introduced the Around the Loop Nested Dies and Fancy Loop Die to our collection. These two dies were created to work together so many layering options for your cards.

The Around the Loop Nested Dies are straight sided oval shapes which were designed to give you more surface area for adding focal point elements or stamping sentiments. These shapes are proportionate for your A2 card. The Fancy Loop has a decorative frame and will layer perfectly with the Nested Dies!

There are so many ways to use these fabulous dies, alone or together. Let's take a look at some of them!

Simply cut a a shape and pop it up on your card. This shape gives you a place to stamp your sentiment and embellish with stamped images like these Roses are Red Stamped and die cut flowers.

Kristie Goulet

Kristie is our rainbow girl! She used the nested dies without cutting them apart to make frames to nest inside each other on this fun card. A little direct-to-paper inking and you have a beautiful array of rainbow colored arches.

Switch up the “sandwich” in your die cutting machine and emboss your card with the dies. Again, this set was not yet cut apart and made this super cool texture on the card layer. So simple and so unique!

Time to layer up! These two by Ashlee have a similar layout but with different colors and accent stamped pieces, you get different looks. The Fancy Loop Die makes such a pretty lace layer.

Lisa Harrolle

Speaking of lace…Lisa laced this up! Using some twine, she created a corset look by criss crossing between the slits in the die. What a creative use of the Fancy Loop Die!

Melissa Andrew

Keep it simple! White on white is always a winner in my book. Just using this decorative element adds so much to the card. This one has a vintage doily feel.

Go full Loop by cutting your whole card base into a fun shape. This is a great idea for Valentines since smaller cards are often traditional for giving away.

There are so many ways to use these dies together and on their own! We can't wait to see what YOU might do with them!
