The 2022 holiday season is quickly approaching and here I am hectically creating my cards so I can get them in the mail ASAP. Using a stamp set with an accompanying punch, such as the Peaceful Deer Stamp Set and Deer Builder Punch is he best way to create beautiful cards quickly...not to mention how easy it is to create multiple cards (a batch) with the combination of stamps and punches. To give this card an additional wow-factor, I also used the Fabulous Frames Dies.
Do you have the Fabulous Frames Dies? They're multi-functional -- the nested dies create die-cut frames in all shapes and sizes -- the set includes six dies that help create six frames out of twelve die-cut pieces in oval, rectangle, or corner shapes, and in a regular or stitched style. Use these nested frames on their own on your card bases or combine them for fancy designs -- they will surely elevate your cards and papercrafting projects, and whatever you create is going to be fab! Trust me, these dies are a must have for your collection!
