Christmas Love

I enjoy doing black and white cards with just a "pop" of color,
and I love how the Christmas tree and red bow stand out against
the music background of this card.
After I made the card I noticed that the little tree label
would make a great gift tag.
Here's a set I made to send a friend
going through a hard time this Christmas.
I packaged them up in a glassine bag
and added one of my handmade festive stickers.
Hope it makes her day a little 
brighter to get some happy mail!

Supplies and Tools: Music Background (Stampin' Up), Tree Punch (Martha Stewart), Red Twine, 
Word Die (Momenta), Snowflake Punch (Martha Stewart), Baker's Twine, 
Star and Heart Punch, Labels 4 (Spellbinders), Labels 1 (Spellbinders), 
Label from Kraft Outlet, Glassine Bag, Digi from Digi Web Studio

I really like how you used the music paper and then the red bow and green of the tree really do pop. Thanks for joining Ink
