This is the third year I think that I've been asked to join in on the behalf of Simon Says Stamp and your can see I've used possibly my favourite tag die Stitched Dress Up Tag die. I cut out another tag in red and start adding the dots and wished I had chosen another die but it's always worth it even though a bit time consuming.
I added a bit of interest using the Simon says Stamp Scallop Stitched border, you could layer it under the dots to give an impression of red dots certainly would speed things up why didn't I think of that then!
I decided to make a wreath using the the pine needles from the Simon says Stamp Pine Needles Wreath die this way I could make what size I like. I then added the Simon says Stamp Holly Fanfare for my Holly. Finally the Ornate Ornaments were on my desk with the perfect sentiment on, I would like add I stamped it first before layering my wreath.
The bit of ribbon is out of my ribbon box I should say trunk since I'm alway picking up ribbon and people keep giving me theirs!
I always panic when I see how everyone dressed their photo, so I quickly found some wrapping paper and empty my stock cubes which are now rolling around my corner carousel where my tins a packet live.
