First an introduction to cross stitched dies. Marianne Design has come out with a line of dies that are quite fun. These dies come in a variety of shapes all with tiny holes that you can stitch thru. They also have downloadable patterns to make this even more fun because you don't have to think of a pattern on your own. There are so many patterns to choose from that it will be easy to make a card for any occasion. Here is a look at the shapes available.
Here are a few samples of cards created with each cross stitch die. The possibilities are endless. You can find the patterns by clicking here.
