The country patches die has been created especially for the Country Patches stencil but it can be used with Patchwork, Cross Stitches and Octagons.
when you buy the metallic die, you also receive a downloadable pdf that shows you some shapes you can also use with other stencils not just only country patches.
I am a HUGE fan of this die. I had so much fun creating my layout and I know I'll use it over and over. PLEASE make more dies, especially for your wonderful borders. I know they are more expensive than stencils but they are worth it. I can create beautiful layouts so quickly - I love it! Thank you.
If detailed small cuts are not your jam then this is the answer. I shied away from using the detailed corners of Country Patches as I am not the greatest with scissors. With this die my pages have the detail that pop the pictures. Well worth the purchase as you get more from your stencil as well. I also use this die for card making---so handy.
