Starbucks, Yum!!

We are giving a couple of Starbucks cards as gifts this year. I purchased them yesterday and the nice girl handed me the card in a really cute little bag. Crafter that I am, I thought, hmmmm, those would make cute card. I asked her for another bag, as I had 2 cards to make, and the nice girl gave me 4 for good measure.

I cut out a 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 square of Garden green, tore the bag to fit and glued it on the CS. Then I mounted that on a 5 x 5 kraft brown card base. Below is the inside of the card. I followed the theme by stamping branches, using the SU Fantastic Foliage stamp set, in Versamark and embossing with White Embossing powder. I adhered a strip of green CS with Merry Christmas stamped on it to the bottom and tucked the Starbucks gift card in there. So fast, so simple.

Christmas Gift bows and Tags

Woohoo!!! I finally started my Holiday stamping and gift making. I purchased a WHOLE lot of ribbon when I went to Costco one day. It comes in rolls of 50 yards so I will be using this forever!!! Seriously, I have some I bought 9 years ago and it is still going strong. I am, however, sharing these with my sisters so it will go faster. I made this Red and gold Poinsietta and the Gold holly bows with the matching tags. This tag is 3x3 and the gold one is 3 1/2 x 3 1/2.
