Christmas Card for Tuesday - Buttons and Bows


Did you know there was a bauble tag on Joys of the Season? No, nor me until I spotted it a few days ago. It is a double tag, so cut out, the card has a front and back, joined at the side. I know, I know, I could do this on design studio, but I have yet to hook up my cricut to my computer. Too much like multi tasking for me. Anyway, cut at 5" it makes a perfect card which fits nicely into a 5" square envelope. I cut it out of some rather fabulous SEI paper that I found the other day, added some lace and some buttons and ribbon and it makes a sweet card with very little effort. The bauble hook was cut from gold mirri card, and I think it would look quite good hanging from the tree.

Great card - I may have to use that bauble tag for my card swap cards - I was playing with CDS today trying to figure out which one I could make into a card and gave up - thank you for the inspiration.
Does the card stand up OK?
