DIE-cemeber over Simon Says Stamp

Hello friends!
I am popping in with a quick post about Simon Says Stamp's DIE-cember
This yearly event is surely the highlight for DIE-hard card makers! 😍

AND I also have a $15 SSS Gift Card Winner to announce at the end of the post.
This is my small part in sharing "Random Act of Kindness". πŸ’—
I am sharing my take with one of the Dies in this new release.
This die called "Flowing Vine Collage" is amazing.
It will cut the entire card front and leave you with this intricate frame.
There is little effort required if you know what I mean....

Merry and Bright Greetings

It's great for any occasion and style. I decided to use it for Christmas card-making.
I used Bristol paper for the die cutting, then I lightly water-colored it with shades of green with Kuretake Watercolors (36).

Inside the frame is a piece of card stock that I previously inked with Distress Sprays and water. I stamped the Poinsettia onto piece of DIY watercolor paper and assembled it. That's it!

I will be back tomorrow to share another version with this new die (which I highly recommend)
... Sorry for being an enabler!
