Video – Holiday Knit Background + Simon Says Stamp Diecember! Diecember – Let the die cutting begin! In December, Simon Says Stamp has a new release jam-packed full of dies. This release often is the transition from Holiday related products to those relevant all year round. I don’t know about you, but I’m hoping to get all my Christmas cards out the door soon. I did want to give the gorgeous Holiday Knit Background die a little love though before the season is over and paired this new die with a couple of previously released dies. Just a hint of stamping on this card, hopefully, it still counts for Diecember ;) I’ve linked all supplies at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used. VIDEO

I die cut the
Holiday Knit Background from Fog card and adhered it to a white card base with a Gina K glue runner. I then cut the die again but this time from Schoolhouse Red card. I used Gina K Connect glue to piece the red poinsettia petals into place.
The weather here is so dark and wet that you can hardly tell day from night, but hopefully, you can see the lovely detailing this die adds to the background.
I paired the background with a
Happy Christmas die cut from white and Schoolhouse Red card and a few Green Leaf holly leaves cut with the Holly Fanfare die. I embellished with Ivory Seashell droplets and Crystal Glaze on the leaves.
I did add one tiny bit of stamping using the
Tiny Words Christmas set, picking out a coordinating sentiment and stamping it in clear embossing ink on Slate card before white heat embossing and trimming to a skinny banner.
Here’s a closer look at what’s in the new
Diecember release from Simon Says Stamp:

Summary of the project which gives all the views of the card in one photo :D I’d love if you pinned and called by on
I can imagine it took a while to put all the little red petals in place but the result is awesome. Love the finishing touch with the green leaves. Great card, great die, thank you so much for showing Debby and have a great weekend.
Stunning ! I would love to see what you did with the balance of the school house red die cut. You inspire me to try new things, thank you for sharing your talent.
Fantastic card. Love the new release.
Lovely card!! The Holiday Knit Background die is my favorite from this release and you showcased it beautifully!
Simply gorgeous, the beautiful colours are what makes this die really shine.
I just found your channel tonight and I will say I am super impressed with your work! Simply Beautiful cards you are making!
Your card is stunning! I don’t think I would have the patience to place the red die cuts into place. Card is beautiful though!
