And now it's time to create! Here is Gloria's gorgeous 12 Days of Christmas card featuring the adorable Turtle Doves paper.  This card is a holiday dream come true!

On the Second Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me... Two Turtle Doves

Card-2a


"My favorite sheet of paper in the 12 Days of Christmas collection is Christmas Rose. It is such a pretty blend of colors and invokes vintage Christmas cards and postcards.



Card-2b

 

I wanted the doves to stand out a bit, so I covered them with glitter glue. They are quite sparkly. I used one of the chipboard elements to create a tag sentiment. I created "fluffy" bows with silk ribbon and glued them to the top of the tag. The finishing touch is a "silver bell."

 

Card-2c

 

I used foam adhesive to add extra dimension to the layers.

 

Card-2d


I decorated the inside of the card with a postage image sticker and a strip from the Joyeux Noel paper." -Gloria

Used a chipboard cut out from the collection in the center and some fussy cut left overs for decoration.

If you don`t like to fussy cut there are many fun stickers in the collection to use. Bow on the top for closure.

Also made another more girly gift bag. I think the paper is decorative enough so no need for more decorating. It's easy and fast.
