A Gift for You

The theme at CASology this week is gift, so I wanted to make a little 4 1/4" square card that looks like a gift!  The theme at Just Add Ink and Stampin' Royalty is Christmas, so this works for those challenges too!
I love making square cards, and 4 1/4" is perfect because it will still fit in a standard-sized envelope.  This one has a bow and a brad though, so you would want to make sure to add some padding in your envelope if you are mailing it so it doesn't get damaged in transit!
This card came together so quickly, which was good because I have a terrible migraine and do not have much patience right now! I started by cutting a 4" square of Festival of Prints DSP.  The ribbon I chose is the reverse side of the Cherry Cobbler Polka Dot Scalloped Ribbon.  I love that one side is plain and one is polka dot.  Makes it so versatile!  For the bow, I just looped some of the ribbon and adhered it with Sticky Strip before poking a hole in the middle for the brad.  I stamped some extra tags the other day for snowman card, so I didn't even have to get out any stamps or ink for this one!

Cardstock: Crumb Cake
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Lucky Limeade
Tools: Paper Piercing Tool and Mat, Jewelry Tag Punch
