A present card...

Hello everyone--it's been a great long holiday weekend and I am so not ready to go back to work but one must do what one must do; and I must go back to work.
I did go a little shopping and cooking over the holiday but nothing crazy.
How was your holiday?  What deals did you walk away with?

Today I have a quick and easy card for the Christmas holiday that will be here before you know it!
This simple A2 card was made using one of the Sizzix embossing folders I got at 75%+25% off at Joann's.  I used my Tim Holtz sanding block to distress the cordinations paper.  

The sentiment is from a CTMH stamp set called Christmas Melodies--one of my all time favs.  I used some red heat embossing powder and my heat gun to get this nice shiny look.
Now for the bow--i used some ribbon from Michael's that was a fun print.  I faked this box--made a loop and than added a PC to the center--I wanted to show off the ribbon and when I tied it in a bow it did not look nearly as in testing.
So this week I have two more projects to share-one card and one double page non-traditional layout.
Make this Monday a great one!


  1. Neat idea to make a card into a present. That is a button right?

    Hope you will stop by when you get a chance.

  2. This is a great card....I did go Black Friday shopping was at the mall at 4 a.m. returned home at 4p.m. (my daughter picked me up at 3:30 a.m.)We had a blast. I found tons of deals and got 95% of my shopping done. My Thanksgiving was awesome my one son and daughter (in-law) came over and my sweetie cooked an awesome dinner...

  3. That's such a cute card. I love the ribbon and bow. Yes, I went and attacked the mob and had a ball. Had to go by myself this year but still had fun. I got a super deal on a DVD player for my husband which made the day worthwhile. Now I'm enjoying Cyber Monday. I'm off to shop!
