Day 5 - Nesting Dies

Nesting dies - the same shape in progressively smaller sizes - are readily available on the market and are great for creating all sorts of fabulous cards.  You can easily cut frames, windows, shaped cards or stacks using the various sized dies, and they look wonderful layered together in different colours.
 

 
YOUR TURN: Use a set of nesting dies to create a layered card.  If you don't own any dies, use scissors or a craft knife to cut out circles or squares of various sizes.
