I love Altenew's geometric cover dies and this has become my new favorite bundle! I am having fun finding new ways to play with these dies together and separately.
These dies are perfect for adding dimension to your card. I like that you can use each plate separately or together to create amazing backgrounds. Great for holidays or year round!
I'm working on Christmas in July, and am quite excited to make simple, elegant, Christmas cards with these dies as the background. I think I will also find non-Christmas uses, as the geometric design can work for many things.
I bought the A & B and they work great together and separately. Love the way they cut out and fill the background for my cards. good clean cuts.
These cover dies work together to create a layered snowflake lattice. If you reverse the two dies you can make a different, just as intricate, lattice, too. For me, the dies are almost more effective when used separately to create their own bold patterns, of say, falling cubes, or tiled triangles. Save the cutouts, as they can also be used to good effect, teaming them with differently-coloured outlines to create elegant geometries. Snipping off the borders also creates a simpler kind of open weave. It's worth mentioning they cut like a dream, with the all the small pieces falling out of the dies. It's difficult to believe something so intricate cut into the paper isn't made with a laser, rather than a mechanical die cutting machine.
