Do you find it challenging to decide which tools and supplies you must have as a cardmaker? With the infinite choices offered, I think it is possible to have too many choices.
The tools I’m sharing today are definitely three die cut sets every cardmaker and sender should have. They can be combined with the stamp set du jour to create handmade greetings for every obligation, occasion or opportunity — all the reasons we create and send cards.
Large Letter Framelits
It’s a pricey set. While the price might push it down the Wish List ahead of smaller sets with smaller price tags, this alphabet set should be on your “Need,” not “Want” list. The beautiful, timeless font is the perfect size for cards, scrapbook pages and packaging. The 37-piece set is an investment that you will never regret buying. I can honestly say that of EVERY alphabet set I own, despite the hesitation to place them on my purchase orders on account of the price.
Well Written Framelits Dies
Creating a handmade card for every obligation, occasion or opportunity is made easier when you own a set of dies with just about any sentiment. The scripty font pairs beautifully with Large Letters to say what needs to be said on your greeting card. Joy, gratitude, sorrow or “just because” are kindly expressed with heartfelt craftiness.
Take a look. I paired the alphabet with the greeting and added the adorable bunny from the Beatrix Potter-esque stamp set Fable Friends to craft a sweet Baby card. The yellow gingham for the letters and lace texture in the background add softness without overpowering the design. One itty bitty bow finishes off the card.
Celebrate You Thinlits
A different greeting die cut set for celebration cards is Celebrate You Thinlits. This 3-die set is the epitome of “good things do come in small packages.” I love the three precise words and the different fonts. Paired with the Large Letter alphabet, it’s easy to bring cheer via snail mail.
Take a peek. I paired the alphabet and greeting with the home decor from Country Home and Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder for country charm ala Fixer Upper.
There they are. Three die cut sets that are staples for every craft cupboard. Stamp sets and art styles will come and go, but these timeless letters and greetings will never wither.
