OK, yes, it's only October, and yes, I only generally start my cards in November for 'that occasion we don't mention' yet.... BUT, I managed to get hold of this gorgeous Christmas die from Germany, thanks to a lovely friend, as the company won't post to the UK yet. I'd already got my sticky mitts on the Spellbinders Embossing Folder, and so the two came together happily!
I embossed a square panel of red card, then used Distress Inks to darken the edges, before I splattered this with gold Kuratake watercolour paint. Then, I diecut the word die three times, the first in gold mirri card, then two others from kraft card, adhering them all together and adding to the panel.
Lastly, I added the panel to a square of gold mirri card, and called it done. I've got a bit of a tendency to add more bits than necessary, so this time, I decided to keep it relatively CAS.

I am really happy how this card turned out, even though I broke my own 'not until November' rule. Hope you like it too!
