A die cut is just a shape cut out of paper, cardstock, chipboard etc. You can glue it to your page, card, project etc.

If you're referring to a die cutTER, that is a machine used to make die cuts.

I've linked examples of both. Hope that helps!

Hope this helps - maybe visual will be good.

On this layout the words "Akaka Falls, Breathtaking" and the butterflies across the bottom are die-cuts. I bought them all pre-made.

On this one, "Big Island" and the trees are a diecut - bought pre-made.

On this one the flower border along the bottom - I had 3 different shades of blue or teal borders and I overlapped them to give them the different color shade but those are diecuts.
