I have been playing with the Holiday Tree die which is very intricate! I found it quite difficult to cut as well and had to put it through the Grand Calibur quite a few times before it completely cut.
However once cut and gently teased out I was pleased with it. Here I used some SU gold shimmer card which I love as it is not too glitzy! I also cut some corner embellishments from the holly accents set. The final touch was a double bow in Very Vanilla seam binding. A few red rhinestones completed it.
