As a bonus, Scapbook.com shows you 5 techniques you can use with your nested dies:

1. Create a Foldable Card

Take a piece of cardstock and fold it in half. This piece will be used as the base of your card. Taking the biggest die,¬†place the die just over the fold, so that the fold doesn’t get cut. When cut, the fold will remain intact, creating the foldable card.
