The first theme of the year is called "No Time Like the Presents" so before you put away your wrapping supplies, pull out some of your leftovers (or that bit of paper from a present you unwrapped that was just too pretty to toss) and make a card featuring wrapping paper or gift tags. Here's what I made this week:
My card features a gorgeous plaid scrap leftover from my own giftwrapping duties this year. I typically mount thin papers like giftwrap or tissue onto a piece of lightweight cardstock that I've run through my xyron machine to make more sturdy, and that's what I did here. The tartan ribbon is also an offcut from this year's supplies... I went a bit mad for plaid! I've embellished that pretty reindeer journal card with some Heartfelt Creations dimensional poinsettias and a couple of gorgeous Eyelet Outlet Pinecone and Poinsettia Brads.
