Gift Bow Die Present Card

I just LOVE the Gift Bow Bigz L Die that is in the Holiday Catalog (good through January 2, 2014).  I am not sure why I haven't played with it before now, but better late than never right?!!?? LOL  

Here is my Gift/Present Bow Card for my December Classes.   It is a simple card, but I love the overall look.    I also have a sample of a 3D Angel that was made using the Gift Bow Die as well.  I would LOVE to claim this as my idea, but i cased the Angel from Fancy for Stampin Blog.

Magic Envelope Card

I saw this technique on Kelly Acheson Blog - A Stamp Above a few weeks ago and knew I had to share with my Stampin Ladies!!   This is a great card, because you don't even need an envelope.  You can seal with on the top right corner with your stamp, add a few address labels and you are done.

I saw this Gift Card holder on Confessions of a Stamping Addict and HAD to make it.
