The Greetery {All Wrapped Up Collection Release Day} plus a SALE!!


Welcome, friends! It's release day for the All Wrapped Up Collection from The Greetery! Thank you so much for all of your sweet comments on yesterday's post! I'm sharing a few new projects today using this fabulous new collection, but before I get started, I wanted to announce some fun news!
The Greetery is having their "Thankful For You SALE"! Yay! The ENTIRE store will be 15 % off, including the new collection. There is also an additional 15 % off of select holiday products that you can find HERE!!!! You can read the graphic for dates and details!

My bonus post for today includes a new card and two new tags! There are STILL  few things I haven't had a chance to use, but one that I was dying to use is the cute "to/from" tag die! I just love how easy it is to use!

Even after making my wreath, I still had a few Big Branches left over so I decided to use them on a card. I decided to use the new Tagged Elegance for the sentiment to create a winter themed card.

This tag features the new Banner Gift Tag and the new Crimped Circle Tags dies; these are a match made in heaven! I die cut the largest Crimped Circle Tag from Weathervane cardstock and then die cut the Banner Gift Tag from both Rustic White and Weathervane cardstock. I originally thought I'd use some of the Weathervane pieces over the top of the white portion, but in the end, I liked it all white. With that, I decided to just layer the white portion on top of the gray portion to make the piece more sturdy.

I love how Betsy tucked some of the foliage from the Winter Medley Die, so I added some to my tag as well; I chose to color them the same as the foliage on the card. I couldn't resist adding a snowflake from the Frosty Corners Die, a star anise piece, and glitter!

I also loved how Betsy used the new Ribbon Maker Large Scallop die horizontally on a few of her cards for a striking background so I thought I'd give that a try. I used one vertically on yesterday's card, which I also love!

I chose Weathervane cardstock for the background and the large scallops; I always love tone-on-tone backgrounds. I die cut two and then added them to the card using foam squares. I used a T-square ruler and a pencil to draw some light pencil lines so I could get them straight; my first attempt without guide lines didn't work out so well! ha ha!

I also had an arch left over from one of my tag projects yesterday so I put it to good use as the grounding piece for the foliage. I added some stenciled snowflakes using the Frosty Flakes Stencil to the arch AND the sentiment circle.

I tore off the bottom portion of each of the branches to make them smaller, but I ended up using the leftover sprigs here and there to fill out the arrangement. I used foam squares and liquid glue and then added the smaller Ribbon Maker Scallop die cut over the top. I chose the "Winter Wishes" sentiment from the new Tagged Elegance stamp set for this card. I stamped it in black on the stenciled circle (this circle is the middle portion from the Roundabout Winter Foliage die)

The sentiment is also added with a foam square for even more dimension; this particular card will not be able to be mailed in a regular envelope because of the dimension AND the Star Anise. Since we're on the subject of envelopes; I decided to gussy this one up using the Flappable Stencil to keep with the wintry theme!

I layered the entire Weathervane panel onto a top-folding A2 card base cut from Rustic White cardstock using liquid glue. I added a hemp bow around the card and tied it in a bow and glued a Star Anise piece over the top.

My third tag is very simple, but will be perfect on a package wrapped with a busier pattern. This one features the Roundabout Winter Foliage die layered just twice with the sentiment stamped directly in the middle using black ink. I added a bead to the top of both tags, tying them up with hemp cord. I had so much fun using this beautiful new release! The entire collection will be available for purchase at 10 AM  ET! Thanks for fluttering by!
