Used the Wave Die on several of the album cards.

Cloud Stencil
The album cards were inspired by a YouTube video by Positively Papercraft. I changed the cover from two pieces to one.
For the base of the card place the circle die hanging over the edge of the fold side of the card stock.
Die cut a full circle to go on the front of the base.
Cut a smaller circles one for the inside and one for the top of the card.
Open Book Easel Card It was inspired by Positively Papercraft video.
Used a die set from my stash. For the larger layer I traced around the outer edge of the die and cut it out. The base is a basic easel card. This one is 6″×8″ scored on the 6″ side at 2 and 4 inches. The largest background was taped to the base. Then I folded the smaller piece in half, taped it to it’s layer then folded it again. Only tape the center fold and adhere it in the center of the card. Do this for each layer/page.
Used the Wave die, Cloud and Pixie Dust stencils on this slimline card.
The Map is also part of the July release. https://kindredstamps.com/products/map
