Did you know You Don't Really Need the Shaded Summer Stamp Set to create gorgeous cards with the Summer Shadows dies? The Summer Shadow dies coordinate with the Shaded Summer Stamp set in the Stampin'Up! big annual catalog. The Summer Shadow dies are FREE in the Sale-a-bration celebration through the end of this month!
The dies are designed to cut out the images in the Shaded Summer stamp set & I would highly advise getting these dies if you have that stamp set. If you don't have the stamp set I would highly advise getting it before it retires....however, right now if you only have the free dies you can still create gorgeous cards...check this out...
Here's a closer look at these blooms
Did you notice that the designer paper is from the Beautifully Penned DSP--it too is free during Sale-a-bration with a $50 purchase.
Remember you can get this die set free with a $100 purchase during Sale-a-bration!
