Welcome WindowRama!

WindowRama Cutting Die Set

One of our newest creations in our January 2019 Catalog is our wonderful new WindowRama Die Set. This set of 5 dies creates charming little diorama cards that fold flat to mail in an envelope and stand up for display.

The set includes the outer, base die which forms the front and back of the card, plus windows that can be combined or used separately to cut out the front of the card for a huge variety of looks. You can also use the windows to make dynamic flat cards and shakers! Fran has recorded a wonderful video to explain the basics of this great die set.

You can see lots of samples using this set on our website by clicking the picture above, and our design team has been playing with the dies all week. Their great samples are listed below.
