Christmas Presents!


Back again with yet another Christmas card design, a very CAS one that took no time at all to put together. In fact, the most time consuming aspect of this was finding the perfect flourish stamp in my stash. I would have preferred something more "explosive" ... like a spray of lines & flourishes, but, what's a gal to do when she doesn't own EVERYTHING??? LOL

There is a lot of gold embossing going on with this card! The gorgeous red metallic DP was a previous purchase at Michael's, so it felt good using something that I had been hoarding for some time. The "ribbon" surrounding the gift box was embossed with a Small Star Embossing Folder to give it some texture, topped off with a lovely gold bow diecut.

The sentiment comes from my current favourite Holiday sentiment set - I just can't stop using this lovely set!

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: My Favorite Things Hand Lettered Holiday Sentiments; Artemio Flourish stamps
