Wrappin' Up

We're still making holiday cards with leftover bits of giftwrap and tags at Jingle Belles and you're still invited to join the fun! Here's what I made this week:

giftwrap styles: red holographic snowflakes, white and silver snowflake tissue paper and snowman giftwrap which one of my presents was wrapped in; blue snowy patterned paper: authentique; snowflake gems: eyelet outlet; sentiment sticker: american crafts; adhesives: xyron, elmers brand tape runner, 3m foam tape, sewing machine

I've got three types of giftwrap on this card: the snowman was fussy-cut from one pattern; (with a second layer of scarf, hat and carrot nose... since one nice thing about giftwrap is the repeating pattern!) the red snowflakes are a second variety and the white snowflakes are tissue paper which I fused to a piece of Xyron-ed cardstock so it would be sturdy enough to diecut into snowy hills. 

As a matter of fact I made two (very similar) cards this week, because after I finished the first one, I sort of fell violently out of love with the red snowflake sky. And since it is giftwrap, and I did have more of everything, I let myself have a do-over in which I swapped in some patterned paper with a softer, bluer, snowy sky. 

Stephanie also has a lovely card to show you AND you might like to check out the original post over at Jingle Belles because I thiiiiiink there just might've been a fun little prize this fortnight...


  1. Both cards are fabulous, love the papers. Since we don't do gifts I have no wrap or tags, I'm still looking for older stuff that is in a box somewhere.

  2. Lovin that snowman, so round and cute.
