Pretty Presents

Hi friends!

I’m posting late this Monday but for a good reason… as I had a busy, fun 3-day weekend crop & I didn’t get my card photographed last night for early morning posting.

Anyway…I made this card at the crop. I was inspired or CASEd Mary Fish’s card . She made a fun fold gift card holder & she even made a tutorial (how awesome is that?!) I eliminated her snowflake, used different ribbon & moved the sentiment.

Here is a close up of the ribbon. The Mint Macaroon velvet ribbon is so soft & to me, says Winter. I tied (silver) Simply Elegant Trim. I’m not sure if you can see but the present DSP has silver bows on the presents. So I wanted to pull in more silver to coordinate .

The dots on the sentiment are our Rhinestone Basic jewels although it just doesn’t capture the sparkle. At the crop, I had a sheet of our Rhinestones on my craft table & a friend walked by, did a double take and came back to comment that Stampin’ Up’s rhinestones are “so shiny & bright…better than any other brand”. I couldn’t agree more- they really outshine every other brand!

Thanks for stopping by today! Please check for my next post on Wednesday.

Happy Stampin’, Marilyn (aka MJ)
