Spotlight on Nature

Did you notice all of the decorative circles in the Spotlight on Nature Dies? I refer to this one as the ‘paper plate’ die because the rippled edge reminds me of a paper plate. LOL. Which one is your favorite?

Don’t underestimate the Spotlight on Nature Dies! These circular dies come in a variety of shapes, which you can use to add depth and dimension to your all-occasion cards, turn into gift tags, make frames, or layer for a bold creation. With beautiful detailing around the die perimeter, these basic shapes are a perfect addition to any paper craft, no matter the season, reason, or occasion, and pair well with sentiments and other stamp designs.
