The Ghost of Christmas Present

The new challenge at Jingle Belles comes from 
Clare at Miscanthus Crafts. She has given us this recipe of things to include in our cards...
1. as white as a ghost
2. a present
3. a bow or knot
4. a touch of traditional Christmas colors
and here is my take...



The cardstock is American Crafts Forest. A scrap of white cardstock was
used for the frame that I cut with a Sizzix Die, than ran it through a Provo Craft Textile Texture Embossing Folder. Another scrap I edged with a Martha Stewart punch and the tag was made with a Nestabilities Label Seventeen and inked with Ranger's Brushed Corduroy. A bow of Pixie's Cotton Bale Seam Binding Ribbon with a vintage button.
Have a Happy Day!

Perfect! I love all the white, Linda. It is so fresh and the doily punch is lovely too :)

Lovely card for the holiday, love that MS doily punch, I used it so much that it almost out of shape by now, LOL! I also love the pretty bow with vintage button, what an elegant touch!
