Modern crafting, especially die cutting, utilizes technology to enable creativity. You no longer have to insert an actual die and manually roll your paper through an old-fashioned contraption. Instead, software included with most machines comes with a range of shapes to use for your projects, giving you the option to import and manipulate images from elsewhere too. The result is freedom to design anything you can imagine, not just what a manufacturer’s designers can imagine. When you are satisfied with the design on your screen, the software instructs your machine to cut it out precisely.
