Paper-Saving Secrets: One Rose, Two Cards

christmastime is here christmas roses stampin up

Do you know those lines from the 1985 movie, Clue? At the end, the detective is trying to sort out all the players by counting them out. “One plus one plus two plus one. No, two plus one plus one plus two…” Anyway, this card reminds me of that confusion. Because one die cut rose equals two cards. What? How? 

Easy – with the Roses Dies that coordinate with the Christmastime Is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper, you can cut out gorgeous sprays of gold embossed roses – then cut them in half and use a half on two different cards or projects. I know. Mind blown.
