Hello everyone! This is Karen, from Close To My Heart, and I am simply thrilled to share some creative inspiration here at Scrapbook & Cards Today! At Close To My Heart, we offer a wide variety of fun, innovative crafting products. Today, I want to share one of these products with you, and I just know you will love it, too!

There truly are so many products that I love to create with but for now, I’m going to tell you a little bit about Thin CutsThin Cuts are top-of-the-line, high-quality metal dies that quickly and easily cut out essential paper shapes. These handy dies come in all shapes and sizes, from basic circles to elaborate designs. Close To My Heart has a set of stitched circle Thin Cuts that are a staple in my crafting arsenal.
These three examples are just a small sampling of what you can do with them. Your creative limitation is your imagination, so think outside the circle and create your heart out!
Let’s take a closer look at the card with the rainbow.

We made use of all four stitched circle dies to create the cute, dimensional rainbow you see here. Let me show you how!
First, cut out three circles in the three colors you wish your rainbow to include using the three largest Thin Cuts.

Next, stack and glue your circles together from largest to smallest. Add the smallest stitched circle Thin Cuts die to the center of your stack and run it through your die-cutting machine.

Lastly, cut this donut shape you just created in half, and there you have it—a rainbow!

If you’ve worked with metal dies before but not with the Thin Cuts line, you will want to give these guys a try. I promise you will not be disappointed!
