Dec 25th



Here's a fun tag using the brand new Dec 25th Express Edge and the Holly Sweet Petite from the latest release by Die-Versions.  

I started off by adhering some Christmas wrapping paper to a tag.  I then dry embossed the entire tag with a DIY embossing folder created with the Snowflake Sweet Petite.  (Click here to see my post showing how I made my DIY embossing folder using this die.)  Next, I die cut the edge and cut the Holly out of fun foam.  Some Distress Stickles were added for the berries.  To complete the tag, the beginning of my sentiment was die cut using the Die-Versions Little Lizzie font.

Be sure to visit the DV Blog and the DV Facebook page to see what the rest of the team has created with this new Christmas release.  Also, don't forget to mark your calendars for the first ever Die-Versions Blog Hop on Sept 17.  There will be fabulous prizes to be won!

Anne, I hope all is well? This tag to awesome. Love that die cut. I'm going to have to check out that die. You did a fantastic job, I just love it. Perfect for Christmas.
I'm not going to be around much also, I'm flying down to Austin Texas to be by my sister in law Georgianna she has a brain tumor and has to have it removed. I will leave on the 18th but do not know when I will return.
Hugs, Pat
