One Last Christmas Card!

It's Friday, two days before Christmas!! I went to Costco and the grocery store today so I think I am ready! And I made one last Christmas card for a special gift. 

For inspiration I used this week's Challenge over that the Shabby Tea Room, 'A Kraft-y Christmas'. The challenge is to use kraft, red, silver, newsprint and star. I love the red and kraft together! My papers are October Afternoon, Holiday Style. I love the Christmas newsprint. 

I created by wreath using Taylored Expressions Snowflake Wreath, Seasonal Wreath Die, and the Basic Bow Die. I added Taylor's Crystal Twinkles to the wreath and mounted it on a small kraft envelope.

 I added silver twine and silver jingle bells along with a star stick pin.

When you pull the tag out of the envelope it looks like this. I used a sentiment and stamp from the Wreaths of Joy stamp set.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful holiday! Thanks for all your support and sweet comment throughout the year!
