Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Dies and/or Punches

Hi everyone!

I'm back today for another Simon Says Stamp Challenge!!!



This week's challenge is to use dies and/or punches and the design team is showcasing the wonderful Simon Says Stamp's exclusive dies. If you have some we'd love to see you use them. Otherwise any dies or punches will work. :)

Here's my card using Holiday Shapes and Mod Tree. (I've linked to the dies further down).


Here's what is used to make my card:



I hope you'll join us in this week's challenge! Up for grabs is the usual $50 gift voucher for the Simon Says Stamp store as well as a special prize package of Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Dies!

Such a sweet card! Love that you could use it for so many holidays - or just to say 'I love you'! - just by switching up the sentiment (which is beautiful, by the way... and being added to my growing wish list, thanks to you!) The glossy accents on the card are such a perfect touch. Love how you're always thinking about the little details, they seem to make the most amazing cards!
