A die-cut is an item (usually paper but occasionally fabric, wood, metal, or plastic) cut with a die-cutting tool into a specific shape. Stickers are usually cut into the shape of whatever they represent; for example, a tulip sticker is cut into a tulip shape. These shapes are fun to emphasize by placing them so that they are partially offset on the edge of a card or scrapbook page.
