A Quick and Elegant Gift Idea

Where in the world has December gone? Four days until Christmas and still so much to get accomplished. I made a HUGE mistake and stopped at the mall today... YIKES!!  Everyone stopped by the mall today. Don't they know we're in a recession? HA!

This is a recent project from our last "Girls Night Out" that I wanted to share with my followers... It's a very quick project that makes the most delightful gift. I call them 'anytime' cards.. perfect for a thank you note or to write a quick letter to a friend. I always keep anytime cards and a few stamps in my planner so they're always accessible if I need one unexpectedly.

My dear friend and co-hostess, Sherrie, found acrylic boxes that hold A2 cards perfectly.. and there are six cards and envelopes in this set. This card has a base paper of creme/winter white and the designer paper is velvet flocked. In the set there are other variations of this designer paper series in these coordinating colors.

I used a scallop punch to encircle the monogram that was embossed in gold.  This clean and simple look is quite elegant when packaged and makes the nicest gift.

The ladies gave huge rave reviews for this project... it was definitely a hit.

Now if I could only get this in the mail I might accomplish something!  It might have to become a Valentine gift if I don't get moving!

Have a terrific day and joyous Christmas... and be safe in all you do!

Details: Neenah 80# creme cardstock and black cardstock, DCWV La Creme designer paper, pop dots, gold embossing powder, scallop and circle punches.
