By now lots of you have your Christmas shopping underway. I love gift giving but I love wrapping the gifts just as much as buying them.  I love making the outside looks special – just like the person I'm giving the gift to.  This card is a tribute to packaging!
I used the Gift Bow Die (hurry, we have not been told it's being carried over after January 2nd!).  I love this die because it makes 3 different bows. Here I've used the small bow, there's a larger bow and you can double up the two sizes for an awesome double bow, too! 
 I sponged the edges of the cardstock for dimension an heat embossed the words with silver.  I played up the silver embossing powder by adding two mini silver brads as well. 
I added silver glimmer paper for the center of the bow which adds that extra sparkle.
