I love this die.
I just wish I'd found it months ago because I would have made all my Christmas cards with it (instead of making just loads of random designs).
With the price of stamps going up all the time I am wary of adding too much embellishment to cards that have to be posted across the country, it's not a problem when it's for a birthday or suchlike but at Christmas when posting dozens it can soon mount up.
Then, without the depth of embellishments, I worry that the cards look too flat and boring.
So this die...I've just added a sentiment (Craftwork Cards) and some Glamour Dust and that's about it.
Impossible to tell from the photo but the background is a beautiful, rich, midnight blue pearlescent.
These last two cards are quite big, 8 inch square, the blanks are Papermania.
