Super New Dies at Polkadoodles

Have you seen the fabulous new Polkadoodles Craft Dies exclusively designed by Nikky Hall available in the Polkadoodles Craft Store, Nikky has launched a super new range of dies and this is just a small selection of them.


This is a perfect all year round die, you can extend the railings to make them as wide as you wish or you can make them into a gate.  The exquisite lamplight can be 3D layered to add a touch of elegance to your cards.


This beautiful frame is not symmetrical, it can be rotated to get a completely different design.  There are also pretty dotted flowers and a smaller frame all with gorgeous pinhole details.


This brilliant door design can also be used to make windows, shutters and flap openings, cupboards etc.  Position the windows wherever you want them - it's completely up to you.

Make sure you pop over to the Polkadoodles Craft Store and take a look at the fabulous new die range, Nikky has designed them all to give you maximum versatility, you had better be quick because they are proving to be incredibly popular.
