I used two new products from the upcoming release: Ornament Dies and the Holly Jolly stamp set. Are those swags just not divine? I added Glossy Accents to a few for lots of dimension. The adorable sentiment (nice to have a new phrase to use) is from the stamp set too. And another thing that I adore? The tops of the ornaments. There is a solid and an outline die (in Kim's signature loops). The solid was cut out of foil paper and the loopy outline out of glitter paper. Very neat in real life.
