For my card today, I've used the chevron tag from Holiday Treats and a couple different snowflake images for a soft, wintery Christmas card. The chevron tag image coordinates with the Tagged Rectangle Die  which I used as my focal point, adding a soft sky snowflake in the center and then overstamping with the Merry Christmas sentiment in black.   For the horizontal panel, I stamped two of the tags side by side, overlapping the rounded parts, then cut out with scissors for a fun little background strip.  A couple snowflakes on each side balance things out and then I used the pointed snowflake from the set and the coordinating die in the Winter Fun Die Set for the snowflake embellishing the tag. I accented with ribbon from the Stormy Skies Ribbon Collection, some Pastel Sequin Mix and soft grey pearls.  The soft sky layer is embossed with a snowflake flurries embossing folder from Darice.

Supply List:
Stamps: Holiday Treats (Verve Stamps)
Paper: soft sky, white
Ink: soft sky, basic grey
Accessories: Tagged Rectangle DieWinter Fun Die Set (A Cut Above by VERVE), Stormy Skies Ribbon Collection (Verve), Pastel Sequin Mix (Verve), grey pearls (Pizzazz Aplenty), snowflake embossing folder (Darice), glossy accents, glitter



Holiday Treats is a super fun holiday set perfect for packaging treats, but also great for card making.  Chevron mugs and java cups are perfect for coffee or tea lovers and with our coordinating Cup of Cheer Die Set, they're so easy to add to your project.  Add in some snowflakes, which can work with the Frosty Snowflakes Die SetFloral Circles Die Set or the Winter Fun Die Set (pointy snowflake) and you've got the perfect wintery creation.  Lots of holiday sentiments and a chevron tag that coordinates with the Tagged Rectangle Die round out the set.

 Thanks so much for stopping by today!  We'll be back again tomorrow with our first looks at another new set and die!  Until then, be sure to hop around if you haven't already!
