Oh, no, what a dilemna!!!
I ended up looking through the catalogue and CASE-ing (copy and share everything) another Christmas card design, to come up with this card. I wonder if anyone will work out the page I found my inspiration on, or the name of the stamp set?
Once I began with the card, it came together beautifully. The silver
bugle french horn is a real eye-catcher, don't you agree? There are 24 sheets of paper in the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) 4 sheets each of 6 double-sided papers, so I know I will be able to use this quite freely. It makes a great background for many of the Christmas stamps released this year.
Another really handy addition to the Stampin' Up!® Holiday catalogue are the mini pizza boxes on page 44 of the catty, and on other pages decorated. They can safely hold your holiday baking, chocolate treats, 3" x 3" notecards or 4 tea light candles, like I have here. This fragrance is Cinammon Sparkle, and they make my craft room smell delicious!
Co-ordinating a gift and card like this does make it just a bit more personal, it's one of the advantages of hand-crafted cards and packaging. I have decided that the mini tinsel trim in red or silver is going to be perfect to finish this gift off, so I added it to my order. It will be here in a few days. Musical Season has the pretty stamp that I've stamped in red on the side of the pizza box
