I love nested dies because they offer so many options, but I understand that they are expensive. So, I think it is always a bonus when you can come up with lots of out of the box ways to use these dies.
The NEW Stitchwork Frames dies are so fun because they create embossed stitch lines and tiny holes along the frame AND cut out the center shape as well. I used a couple of the circle dies to create a pattern on card panel and then layered up several of the squares and rotated the shape on the card front to create a diamond.
These techniques are especially fun when you have vibrant colors of cardstock to work with.
If you would like to see the creation of both cards check out this video:
