Die Cut Week: Lovely Layers

Hello everyone! Have you enjoyed all the fun die cutting projects this week? I think a die cut machines is a paper crafter's best pal :) Today I am sharing two more projects using dies. I layered some strips of paper on a piece of thin printer paper and cut it out with a label die to use on a card:
