Today I am sharing 3 cards using just one die! The LARGE OUTLINE THANKS die gives you so many options to play with and it’s one of those dies you will be using again and again through out the year. I also grabbed my distress oxides, both inks pads and sprays and had a lot of fun creating backgrounds.

Watch the video above for a step by step tutorial on how I made all these cards and check out below some close-up photos

    Love seeing this die in action. I had not idea it had three option to use, plus many more depending on what you inlay back in for a look. Great video and instructions

    I like that you showed many ways to use this die since it has three separate parts. The simplicity of the backgrounds really help make the bold sentiment pop.
