Craftin Desert Divas Mini Release – Holiday Border Dies

Hello Everyone!!! This month, CDD is having a Mini Release and the brand new Holiday Border die set is PERFECT for all your holiday cards, planner pages, and scrapbooking! One of the reasons I love the CDD border dies so much is because of their versatility! So today, I have three different cards to share with you, using each of the border dies in this new set! You can see the photos below and if you want even more details on this brand new Holiday Border Die Set you can watch the full New Release Highlight Video over on the CDD YouTube Channel!!

 For my first card I used the lights border die. I pulled out a rainbow assortment of alcohol markers and colored in each light bulb. Then with a gray marker I colored in the metal part of the light and finally colored in the strand green. After cutting and coloring three of the strands I added them to a frame with a vellum backing and created a fun shaker card!

Next up was the tree border. I used my Distress Inks & mini post it’s to mask and color in each little element on the border. I added a bit of glitter to the top of each present for the final touch. For this border I combined it with the Nice List Stamp Set and Snow Flurries Stencil to finish off the entire scene.

On the final ornament border die I used the negative of the die cut as a stencil. I smooshed some Versamark Ink through the “stencil” and then heat embossed in white. After ink blending over the embossing I die cut the panel and added a die cut cut sentiment. To finish off the card I finished stamping the sentiment inside.
