Winter Frost Snowflake Gift Holder

This is a gift card holder, made with the 
 In this example, a length of paper was left extented,
to enable a folded portion for the gift card.

 I used the Festive Flurry bundle to stamp and cut
snowflakes for the front panel.  The "Joyful Tidings" sentiment
from Christmas Messages was embossed on the reverse side
of the circle panel.  The panels were decorated with DSP
from the Winter Frost pack.

Occasions Alpha Tag Card

This is a submission for the Just-Add-Ink Challenge here.
The Occasions Alphabet is useful from a number of 
perspectives.  It is a vertical message set, which lends itself
to banners, flags and tags.  Secondly, it covers a wide
variety of stamping and scrapbooking events.

This card also features the Season of Style DSP
paper pack.  You can produce a lot of different looks
out of this paper stack.  Framing the tag with
the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder really highlights
the tag in the center of this card.

Colors:  Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler,
Gumball Green, Season of Style DSP

Other:  Chalk Talk Framelits, Framed Tulips EF,
Gumball Green Ribbon

Gifts of Kindness Diversion

It's turned cold & snowy here, so I needed a sunny diversion. 
The Gifts of Kindness set is just such an easy
way to put together a beautiful card.  It has several
excellent sentiments, so works for many occasions.
