Holiday GIfts

Today I am presenting Christmas card #2! A result of my goal to make this year's cards well ahead of time. At first I was stumped by the challenge given to use gifts on our cards, the theme at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. That prompted me to look through my stash and find the retired DSP (SU) that works well for the theme. And helps me to use up some of my hoard. That's why I love challenges so much.

Aren't the images on this paper sweet? I fussy cut two of the gifts, punched a star from glitter paper, adding a sentiment and a bow. Easily done! 

I'm also entering the holiday challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More. Supplies are listed below. Thank you so much for visiting! Wishing you a great day.

What a pretty card! I especially like the bow and the circle cut out with the presents inside it--such a nice touch that adds a lot to the card.

Such a lovely Christmas card! Love that beautiful bow die cut! It pairs perfectly with the gifts and the wonderful paper! Great card!!

How perfect! You made the prettiest card! Challenges almost always make me pull out some older things. I have so much stash I'll never get through all of it, but it sure is fun trying! Good progress on your Christmas cards, Cindy!

I agree that challenges are great for making us look at our stash in a different way. This paper is lovely, and I love how you've cut out the presents for a focus. Thanks for joining in with us at 52CCT this week, I hope we'll help you build your stash through the year.

You've made a beautiful card featuring gifts for 52 CCT's current challenge, #3!!! The sketch layout is great to balance showing enough of the print but also have room for a sentiment and some accents! Thanks for linking to 52 CCT! Becca/DT

What a pretty card! The patterned paper is beautiful, but it's how you've used it, and the little extras you added, that really make the card. Thanks for playing along at Addicted to Stamps and More!
