I got creative!

I am getting a head start on my Xmas card making this year so you'll be seeing some cards posted over the next little while. 

I made 6 of these cards using our Star Spangled Banner and Black cardstock.
The border stamp is from D1225 Jingle Borders and the sentiment is from A1110 A Timber.

The black strip is embossed in white and punched with a border punch.

The card is actually based on this card by K Werner.  I made the card landscape style rather than portrait style so left the ribbon off.  It looked too plain without the ribbon so that is why I decided to do the border punch on.

If you're like me and scrap 12x12 you know that when you cut down your 12x12 into an 8.5x11 you are left with that strip of cardstock that is 3.5 inches wide.  I am REALLY trying to use my scraps up now so decided to make co-ordinating gift tags!  I love how they turned out!

Hope you like them and thanks for the inspiration, Kristina.  You rock!
