52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown - Theme Challenge #9

Hello friends!  The challenge this week at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown is a Theme challenge - "Gifts of the Season".  There's a whole bunch you can take away from this theme and we just can't wait to see what you come up with!  Here is my card to share with you today - hope you like it!
I decided to make my card look like a package.  The new scalloped tulle ribbon from the Stampin Up!Holiday Mini catalog sure came in handy for this card.  It's a tad bulky with the big bow but it isn't heavy and does squish down quite a bit to put in an envelope (will probably still need extra postage though).   Here's a couple other views:

I am also entering this card in the Christmas Cards All Year Round - September Theme Challenge -Christmas Presents.
 Please pop into the 52 CCT challenge site adn see what the rest of the talented DT members have made for your inspiration. It would be great if you'de visit their blogs too and leave them little love note when you do.  Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me today - til next time... Hugs and Happy Crafting (guess I should say "Merry" crafting - ho ho ho). 

Supplies (all from Stampin Up!): Cardstock - Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla.  Stamp (sentiment) from No Peeking stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink.  I used the ornament punch to make my tag and inked ever so lightly around it with a finger daubler just to give it a little definition.  Ribbon - NEW 3/8" Scalloped Tulle in Cherry Cobbler (comes in two other colors and is great for wrapping actual packages too).  DSP is from the Festival Prints Designer Paper Stack (NEW in the Holiday mini - 48 sheets of various patterns in 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 size each).  Other - twine and dimension dots.
