Embossing and a holiday treat holder

 I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving last week. Ours went well even though the turkey was a bit underdone. The microwave helped to cure that problem. I basically relaxed over the weekend and caught up on my reading. If you are a James Patterson fan, I recommend his latest – I Alex Cross. We also decorated the house inside and out for Christmas.

On to the card below. Tomorrow is our monthly card swap at Stamp and Deliver. The theme was to use any type of embossing on our cards.


I went the easy way out and did dry embossing. I used the flourish frame Cuttlebug folder on a white panel. Layered this onto a green panel then a red panel. The finished card is 5 by 6.5 inches. The sentiment on the card is from Bo Bunny. It is actually a rub-on. A few red and green Kaiser pearls were a finishing touch. I have really decided that all my holiday cards are going to be clean and simple. I am not going to stress over them this year.

The next quick little holiday treat is for our co-workers. It is a simple matchbook fold treat holder and inside is a Ghirardelli chocolate square.

100_1769The paper is from Basic Grey – one of their older Christmas packs. I used a Martha Stewart border punch on one end. The sentiment is Just Rite from the Merry Little Christmas set. I stamped it in Memento Rich Cocoa ink. The layered circles are cut from my Nestabilities. If I work assembly line style I should be able to finish them in a few nights. I have about 4 dozen to make and I just might have my DH help this year. Surely he can use a paper cutter….
