Christmas gifts at Christmas Kickstart!

I spotted the latest Christmas Kickstart challenge this morning and had fun creating a card using a gift, this one from a Silhouette file. Here's my card:

Supplies: Paper - DCWV Ms Sparkle red A2 card, Paper Studio glitter,
Lawn Fawn Peace Love Joy & Snow Day Remix 6x6 pads, 
Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, scrap of dotted green unk
Silhouette file - Design ID 23864 Present 
Dies - My Favorite Things Blueprints (retired stitched rectangle),
Our Daily Bread Mini Tags
Other - Distress Oxide ink; Hero Arts felt accents (retired), Joy Ultra thin foam

Challenge 20 - It's a Gift!
I started by cutting the present in green glitter paper, plus an offset mat in white. I backed the present with a square of red patterned paper from Lawn Fawn Peace Joy Love, then adhered it with foam squares to the white mat. I added two tags - one cut from a Lawn Fawn Snow Day Remix paper and one cut from white and stamped with holly and the sentiment. Finally, I added some 2010 felt embellishments (bow and holly). I cut a stitched rectangle and added a strip of dotted paper for a "table". Done!

This was a fun challenge - thanks to Jo at Christmas Kickstart for offering it! The challenge runs for two weeks if you have an urge to participate. I'm up over 50 Christmas cards in the stash so am well ahead of schedule - yay!! Thanks for stopping by!
