May Peace be Your Gift

Good Morning!
I'm here today with my post for Die-Versions, and have a fun new die to share.
This "Holiday Tag" Whispers DVW-391, just called out to  me when I first saw it.
It's meant to be a tag, but I decided to try something different.

This view shows the entire card.  I trimmed a bit off of the bottom so that it would fit nicely into an A2 envelope.

In this shot, you can see that I left the green deer in the die cut, but punched out all of the other little pieces.  This was the toughest part, as these pieces always want to fall right out of the dies!  I die cut the tag again in white, and adhered it directly over the green die cut.  I saved the large snowflake, a couple small bits, and the white deer, and added them to the bottom of the card.

I folded my card base, centered the die on the fold, and cut through only the top half.
So, when the card is open, the deer are sort of 'showcased' at the top.
Added a nice sentiment and a bit of bling!

I can't wait to try this as a Christmas tag! What fun!

Thanks for stopping by today,

Patti J.
