Die Cuts within Die Cuts

I'm loving these cards made from an idea from Kristina Werner from Day 2 of the online card class; Stretch Your Dies.

These are die cuts, cut from hand watercoloured paper, have been placed together on a semi-sticky tape (or sheet) and then die cut with large shape.  Simple shapes seem to work best, and I found that they can also be cut from a template if you don't have suitably sized die. The heart-shaped one was cut from a paper template made by drawing around a coaster.

The die cut pieces are raised up on sticky pads to give greater dimension.

I'm learning to do so many new things in this class and highly recommend it.
