It's Simon Says Stamp's annual DieCember release - what a fun assortment of dies!
I received the new Detailed Rose die set, and I have 2 cards for you.
supplies: tan, black, Schoolhouse Red, a burgundy, Green Leaf, and a darker green cardstock, Detailed Rose dies, Sunny Studios Quilted Hearts embossing folder
I used the detail dies to cut the black outlines, then the solid images to fill in with color. I also pieced in a few more burgundy pieces to add extra depth to the image. This is such a big die that I decided to forego the sentiment on this one, until I use it. I placed the rose over a background with tiny hearts. Since it's a red rose, it could be for Valentine's Day!
Then I decided to make a more elegant card and changed to gold details for my next one, and put it against a gold hot-foiled background on cream.
supplies: metallic gold, cream, Schoolhouse Red, Green Leaf and a darker green cardstock, Detailed Rose dies, Christmas Blessings dies, Spellbinders Essential Glimmer Rectangles and Glimmer Hot Foil machine, gold glimmer hot foil
Since these colors reminded me of Christmas, I used a Blessings sentiment die.
