Christmas Gifts - Stampin' Up! Itty Bitty Christmas

   There is no end of inspiration out there for making Christmas cards so I just can't stop making them.  The Paper Players have a fun "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas" challenge that I wanted to play along with.  I took a bit of inspiration right from their challenge graphic (seen at the bottom of this post) as I used the gift box with the beautiful red bow and silver glitter background.

  There isn't much stamping on this card but I enjoyed using these papers to create these gift boxes with fun glittery bows.

  The card base is Whisper White thick, then a layer of silver printed vellum.  The boxes are put together with Sahara Sand cardstock and a nice star pattern DSP from the Classic Christmas DSP that is part of the Curvy Celebrations/Curvy Christmas suite.  This is also a good design for using up some smaller scraps of both DSP and cardstock.

  I used some Cherry Cobbler (or is it Merry Merlot??) Glimmer paper for the bows.  The Wreath Builder die set has a nice bow die that is just the right size for my boxes.

 The mini tags are stamped and embossed with silver and then hand trimmed with paper snips to get them just right size-wise.

  The bows and the smaller box are popped with dimensionals.

  Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
