Tera says "Today I decided to do a fun new take on using dies. As many of you know I love mail art, but gluing pieces on the outside of an envelope can be awkward. To keep the envelope nice and flat, but add depth and dimension I decided to combine stamping with "masking" with Die cuts! This Is a great technique to use on all of your upcoming Christmas tags, envelopes, and even gift wrapping!!"

And that's it folks! Visit the Die-namites blog for their last day and make sure to catch up on leaving comments. We'll be announcing a giveaway soon!!

Did you get lots of inspiration this week? Maybe you can finish your Christmas cards, make  your own wrapping paper or even put together some beautiful handmade gifts.
