Joy to the World - Simon Says Stamp DIEcember Release Hop Day 1

Good morning! Excited today to be joining in on Day 1 of an incredible blog hop to celebrate the BRAND NEW DIEcember Release from Simon Says Stamp! Make sure and check out all the inspiration with this new release AND link up your creations as you receive your orders HERE in the Gallery created just for this release! And check out the graphic below to receive a FREE Little Angel die with any $30 or greater purchase and the coupon code below through December 5, 2021 as well - while supplies last (code expires at 11:59 PM EDT)!!! 


I'm loving this new Triangle Burst Medallion - and die cut from gold with red behind it, it reminds me so much of a poinsettia!


So pretty and intricate! I die cut it from gold glitter cardstock, then used it to die cut a negative space in some white cardstock that I had already die cut with the gorgeous previously released Detail Petal Plate.


I backed that window with some Lipstick Red cardstock, then adhered the die cut piece with liquid glue just in the center portions of the die. That allows the edges to float up for bonus dimension!


I added a pre-printed Reverse Sentiment hand trimmed into a banner and mounted with foam adhesive to the center of the die cut shape.


Then added some pretty Metallic Gold Pearls from Pinkfresh Studio to finish the focal point off!


Finally, I mounted that entire panel with foam adhesive on a white cardbase. So elegant and fancy, don't you think?!?
