Use the Negative

Use the Negative

Use die cuts and punches in two ways by including the positive (the cutout designs) and negative (the holes left after the die-cut). You’ll save scrap paper from the trash and avoid using new embellishments.

Editor’s Tip: Try this technique for a two-page layout. On one side, use the punched or die-cut shapes as a background. For the other side, use the negative shapes.
