by Hero Arts July 23, 2019 200 Comments

Hello friends! It's time for the final sneak peek before tomorrow’s 2019 Oh What Fun Catalog reveal, and today we're turning to the Fancy Dies section of the catalog to show you this beauty from page 24...

Card by Creative Team member Emily Midgett

Say hello to the Merry Christmas Cover Plate (DI657)! This intricate die was designed to cover an entire A2 card front and will allow you to create stunning Winter and holiday scenes with one pass through the die cut machine. To create this gorgeous card, Emily blended inks and added sequins for an extra festive touch. Keep it simple or dress it up, the choice is yours! We can't wait to see the creative ways you use the Merry Christmas Cover Plate this holiday season.

GIVEAWAY: Leave a comment on this post and we will randomly select one winner to receive a $20 gift card to the Hero Arts online shop! Please comment by Wednesday, July 24 at 11:59pm PT.

Here are links to the previous peeks (and giveaways!) in case you missed any. Be sure to comment on each for more chances to win: Peek #1Peek #2

We've barely scratched the surface of the goodness included in this collection and we're so excited to share it ALL with you! Did someone say Reactive Ink reinkers? How about Enamel Dots? You'll have to see for yourself tomorrow. Oh what fun!
