Vintage Greeting Cards ~ DrEaMy dArLinG DIE-CUT details

Greeting cards surely come in every imaginable shape! And greeting card makers have been endlessly creative with their offerings~and greeting card lovers delight in all the fabulous little details!
When cards are cut into special shapes it is known as "DIE-CUT" this refers to the steel blades ~the " Die"~ that publishers use in the cutting process.
certainly there are zillions (yes! zillions!) of examples of the creative ways card makers have used die-cutting to make their cards. Here are a few examples from my collection>>
