Holiday Greetings-

Hi everyone---we are half way thought this week and I am packing my bags again for a work trip to San Fran!  This time we are doing an event at a local mall for one of our new products--if your in Dallas--there will also be one at Stonebrier Mall in Plano this Saturday.
Today's card was simple--see for yourself.
I used one of the Creative Memories Cartridges for the gifts--the paper is all MAMBI Christmas stack I picked up at Joann's.  If you could see the amount of Christmas paper I have you would laugh that I bought more!
Here is a close up--I used some glossy accents to high light the polka dots and give a litter texture.  I also cuttlebuged the white background with the Holly folder. 
I used the glossy accents on the background to highlight the holly berries.  
I finished off the inside with a few of the left over bits. 

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to check back on Friday there is more goodness in store. 
make it a great one-


  1. What a great your choice of papers and the gifts are so stinkin' cute really like your detail for embossing and the crystal accents....great job!!! Where or when did you get the Holly embossing folder is it an oldie or a newie? I'm a Christmas embossing folder junkie. I have way to much christmas paper/cardstock too but hey..I say live a's an expensive addiction but a safe, healty & happy one! Safe travels to you and looking forward to Friday.....
