Here’s the details…

  • Real Red – 4 1/4 x 11 folde
  • Painted Christmas DSP – 4 x 5 1/4, wrap piece of Fine Art Ribbon around piece and add to card front
  • Soft Seafoam – cut out label, add to card fornt
  • Basic White – stamp leave in Garden Green 3 times, cut out
  • Real Red – stamp greeting in Versamark, white emboss. cut out with label die…you have to cut out twice to make it the smaller tag like mine, add leaves behind label and add to card front using dimensionals
