Christmas Card for Raissa

Happy Saturday,
Since it is soooo cold in Florida, I thought it still appropriate to make Christmas postings! As I shared with you here the card that my friend and SU demo Raissa sent me for Christmas, I would now like to share with you what I sent to Raissa.
The card base is Real Red and the DSP is from the retired Dashing pack. I used the Delightful Decorations stamp set and coordinating punch to make two ornaments--one in Real Red and one in Old Olive. I don't know what you call this technique, but the ornament spins in the opening. It was the first time I tried this and I really like it.
The holly on the inside of the card was made with a MS leaf punch and SU 1/4 circle punch. The sentiment is a $1.00 stamp.

I also made Raissa a matching coaster post-it holder. The stamped image on the inside is from the retired Punches Three set. The post-it pad matched so well with the colors.

As lastly, this is the gift bag.
You can visit Raissa's blog here. If you are looking for a SU demo, she's your girl!
Thanks for stopping by today. Until next time, happy crafting!

Love that Dashing DSP. I just got a pack recently when SU had a clearance sale. I never did use any for my holiday cards though. Next year... These are great projects.
