Take a Bow


I am back with a few more festive makes as we hurtle towards the Christmas weekend.  I think that I have finally got there with my Christmas cards and just need to get some last minute gifts tomorrow.  Once I finish work later this week, hopefully the festive spirit will descend upon me :)

Inspired by the current challenge over at CASology where the cue card is Bow, I made a few CAS cards to put gift cards in for a few of our younger family members using this design:

I gold embossed the ribbon and bow from Avery Elle and cut the bow out so it was popped up over the tag.  Touches of gold glitter card were added to increase the level of bling and I personalised the tags with a very old alphabet stamp.  As well as CASology, I will link up the card to Simon's Wednesday Challenge with the theme of 'gift it'.

I stayed with the gold and white theme and stamped an ornate snowflake stamp along with a sentiment which I think is Hero Arts.  The background card is bordered in gold krylon pen. I shall link the card up at Simon's Monday Challenge with the theme of 'let there be snow' and at the CAS challenge over at Addicted to Stamps.

Finally I used the fabulous Penny Black wreath die in shades of green card and topped off with a gold glitter bow and sentiment from Clearly Besotted.  I am going to link this card up at the Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge which is 'Wreath'.
I hope you like my Christmas designs :)
Thanks for stopping by,
