Stencil and Masking Template Using Die Cut

Have you thought of ways that you could use your die-cuts more than once and in different ways? In one of my recent project, I've used the "elegant flourish" die-cut from Tim Holtz Alterations. I want to create more depths and dimensions with a single die-cut.

First of all, I've used the back of the die-cut to mask some flourish. Then, I've used the negative template of the die-cut to stencil on some flourish. Turn around the template to create different look and use different tones of distress inks to create some depths. (What is the negative template of the die-cut? It's the leftover piece of paper after you've die-cut on.) For the last layer, attach the die-cut itself to the project using foam adhesives.

Isn't this easy? Try it and you'll be amazed what a single die-cut can do!
