One more...

I decided to post one more Christmas card before I do the drawing.  You can check out the prize package below and post a comment until this evening.  I will draw two names and post them later tonight.  Thanks everyone for playing along this week.  Nice to read all the fun comments.
  
This is a Cabinet Card that has been made into a Christmas Card.  There is a #8 tag inside that can be pulled up using the bow at the top.
The silhouette is the new Sizzix Alterations Carolers die.  Once of my favorites from the new release.  The background has been inked using the new Layering Stencils - Stars.  Now add on my beloved red Vial Labels and the new Christmas Remnant Rubs and Mirrored Stars.  Love it.
new product
Sizzix Alterations Carolers die

Trimming - naturals, red and cream pk.

The #8 tag pulled from the card with stenciled stars, a pine cone stamp from Winter Sketchbook,  More Industrious Borders inked with Alcohol ink.
Remember, it's the last day to comment on any of the posts this week to win one of the two signed messenger bags full of products.  New colors of Distress Markers, Perfect Pearls, Stickles.  Then throw in some new Ranger metallic cardstock and watercolor paper, idea-ology wordbands, skates + an apron and signed tote bag.  There are even a few more things that you can't see in the picture!...Who wouldn't want a tote bag full of goodness?
 
carry on,
paula

  1. Such a pretty card and tag, Paula, I cannot wait to get my hands on the holiday papers and embellishments. In fact I am beyond anxious. Some day I am going to figure out how you get your bows that fluffy with such obvious centers. I use your technique and end up with a big hot mess of loops.

  35. As I scrolled down to the tag, I was still admiring that great card, and then I saw the tag! Wow! I don't know which I like better! I guess I can say I like them both equally. The red industrious border, the stars on the tag and the layout of tag, and the red vial labels - I love all those things. This is a Pin-it moment!

  47. I love them all, but my favorite is the Christmas Burlap Panel because it is what Christmas is all about...Baby Jesus. I have been looking for something to make a manager scene for my Christmas cards for this year and it is so hard to find religious cut outs and dies. I do not know a lot about dies, etc. so it may be that I do not know what to look for. I think your Christmas Burlap might be the closest I can get for something beautiful and religious. Thank you so much for the idea and the chance for the good things.

    1. julie, that is not a stamp, it is part of the rubbing sheet.
      There are two new Stamper Anonymous stamp sets that have the stamp, Deco Christmas and Mini Holidays 5. They should be coming to stores soon.
