A Cat To Die For

Back in the olden days, we had to hand cut everything that we stamped. Personal die cutting was like a glitter bomb dropped into the stamp industry. It's really hard to remember life before dies, sort of like how hard it is to remember life before the MISTI.

There's something that feeds my CAS soul when I can make a card using only dies. They are so perfectly neat, it just pops everything.

So I'm bringing you an all die card today. I used this gorgeous all-year background die to cut Key Lime cardstock. Look how crisp that is with the teeny stitching. On top of that, I just added a white circle to put this adorable Picture Book Santa Cat die on. SQUEE! It's so cute! I finished it off with this word die. The cardstocks are Key Lime, Red Hot, Black Onyx and White.

At first I was going to put the cat on a glitter paper background, but the rest of the card was so clean and bright that it just didn't look right. Once I swapped it out for white the whole card looked harmonious.

These cuties are part of the Diecember release at Simon Says Stamp - so you and I can head over there together to see what else is new! They always amaze during Diecember.

Hope you find something fun!
