Holiday Hugs

Hello!  This is Sukie and today I'm sharing a holiday card with one of the newest releases in the online store.  There are 4 new die releases with a variety of dies for the upcoming holiday season.  The best part is they are all currently on sale!

I started playing with the latest Christmas die release and cut out the pieces from the Snowman Smore die set. The tags are from the Mail Tag Set.
I embossed a piece of kraft card stock with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I selected a red card base for a pop of color.
The embossed card panel was flipped over to the "debossed" side and inked on the edges.  The panel was then layered on the card base.  The finished piece looks more like a graham cracker than the embossed side.
Next, the three tags were tied together with some twine and adhered on my card base.  I offset the tags a bit so each of the colored tags would show just a bit.  The twine brought all of the colors together beautifully!
The Snowman Smore was centered on the top tag fitting perfectly as the focal point of my card. 
The sentiment was stamped on a hand cut flag and adhered on the bottom edge of my card.  The sentiment was perfect for the sweet snowman who appears to have his arms out for a holiday hug!
Here are the dies used on my card, available in the store:

So cute- love this little s’more snowman and putting him on a tag is a great idea- I always save the tags I receive and use them as decorations on one of my trees

Love this little toasty marshmallow snowman! And the debossed background is a fantastic idea - I'm going to use that!
