From Our Family to Yours

Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. As this months challenge hostess, I bring my final challenge for the month.

Apparently tomorrow is Bow Tie Day, so let's include some sort of bow on our cards this week … it doesn't have to be a Bow Tie as long as it is a bow.

As you can see, I didn't go with a bow tie for my challenge ... I decided to use a bow die I purchased a few years ago from Papertrey Ink and I added it to the front of my card so that it would resemble a present.

For the inside of my card I used the Merry Christmas Pop Up Card die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. To decorate the edges of my card, I used the Agatha Edges die set.

I have also used the new Merry & Bright Clear Stamp set to finish my sentiment.

Here is the side view of my card so you can see the pop up portion of the card.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:
