15 reviews


The Crafters Essentials Winter dies includes five individually designed dies that you can mix and match to create uniquely designed cards time and time again.  These dies are perfect for the winter holidays and Christmas. 

Dies included:

  • A2 sized *Cut & Emboss Stitched Snowflake Swirl Background Die
  • Two stitched snow drifts/hills
  • One die with three pine/Christmas trees
  • One deer die

Kat Scrappiness dies are high-quality steel and are compatible with most  die cutting machines! 

*Note: The background die must be die cut and then embossed to achieve full results.  Please see video for instructions. 

This is an example of what the background looks like when cut and embossed:

No matter what die cutting machine you use, I suggest using one plate as the bottom plate and one as the top every time you die cut.  That way only one plate gets cut into.  In fact, I wrote on my plates with a black sharpie “TOP PLATE” and “BOTTOM PLATE” so I don’t’ mix them up.  Each time you die cut you will want to flip and reverse your plates to keep them from warping.  Warped plates do not cut well at all.

  1. Background dies and dies with straight edges should always be placed onto the plates at a slight angle (diagonal). This way when it goes into the machine, the corner goes in first and it will not only give you a better die cut, but it will also keep your die cutting machine good working order.
  2. When die cutting an intricate die, you will always want to use new, un-warped plates.
  3. ALWAYS cut your die with the cut side UP, especially with intricate dies. This will apply the most pressure from the rollers to the blade of the die and not to the back of it.
  4. If you are having trouble die cutting an intricate die, and you are using a Sizzix Big Shot, use the Sizzix Precision Plate. It’s a great tool for intricate dies.
  5. If your die is not cutting all the way through the paper and you’ve used all of the tips above, add a metal shim such as this one from Lawn Fawn.
  6. If you run a die through and it doesn’t cut well, before you add a shim, make sure to remove all of the paper outside of the die before you run It through again. It will help you get a cleaner cut on intricate dies.  (Thanks to my friend Gina Marie for this tip!)

    Winter dies

    Christmas is the season I most definitely enjoy and cards are a big part of my joy at this time of year. Each year browsing holiday stamps and dies is a magnet and these winter dies will be a part of the holiday theme for this year.

    This is a wonderful winter scene die set that isn't just for Christmas. I especially like the "blowing snow effect" on the cover plate die. All of the dies cut cleanly and easily
