I really love the versatility of this bundle.  You can create cards, and tags but most of all I love the sentiments.

These are Bridge Cards using different DSP and featuring the embossing paste to make snow drifts. 

This is my favorite card.  I used Tranquil Tide, Whisper White and Gold Foil card stock. I embossed the sentiment with Gold Embossing powder and added the stars cut from the framelits.  SO EASY!  

Simple Tag or even a Bookmark using the Hearts Come Home stamps set on Whisper White with Real Red, Old Olive and Garden Green Inks.   Trees are stamped with Crumb Cake.  This is such a fast and easy project.
