Today I have a Christmas card that I made because I wanted to play with the fantastic ribbon that is in the 2013 Holiday catalog. It looks fantastic when layered together and the contrast between the grosgrain and the burlap gives a lot of nice texture the card.
I used my Stampin' Write markers to color the stamp so that I could make the gifts be different colors. I also like the contrast of the two different patterned papers on this card. I also like that if you changed up the colors on this card, you can use it as a birthday card as well!
Here is a close up of how I layered all of the elements for the focal point of the card.
