Framed Dies - One Cut, Two Cards or more!

I am so excited...this week my frame dies from MFT arrived!  I have been wanting these for quite some time but they are expensive.  I've not felt I could purchase them until I rec'd an e-mail that MFT was having a bundle sale!  Well, I jumped right on it and now I have a couple of fun cards I made using just a single cut!

Here are the 2 cards I made....


This Thanksgiving card was made using the larger frames that are meant to be used from the dies.  The sentiment ( and outside edge of the card were embossed with Gold ep by IMAGINE Crafts.  

This card was created with the "waste" between the frames I cut....meant to be discarded but why when you can create such a fun card with them!   The background was stamped with VersaMark ink then dusted with Rich Gold PanPastel.  The sentiment was stamped with Elderberry Memento Ink.

And here's how I did it.  I carefully taped the dies down one by one to my cardstock - starting with the largest die I then positioned the middle sided die so it was almost exactly in the center of the first.  I then positioned and taped the smallest die.  Once cut you're left with so many fun die-cuts to use on a variety of cards.  I didn't think about it at the time but you could even trim your original piece of cardstock so it could be used over a card as well.  So many possibilities with little to no waste!  Gotta love it.
