Every year I try to design a clever gift card holder and when I saw the bag image from this set I knew it would be perfect to use as a holder for a gift card. I used some GKD Red Carpet Patterned Paper for the bag and a different piece of patterned paper from the same pack for the background to make it pop. The red ribbon brings out a little bit of the red in the patterned paper I used for the bag and dark card base makes a good back drop.
The gift card is from Starbucks and it fits right in the middle with even some room for a bit of tissue (I popped the bag to be able to slip it in as well as to add some dimension.

Next is a card using Rupa's new set, Christmas Joy.
As soon as I saw this set I was drawn to this image and knew that I wanted to create a card with a lot of blue in it and this is what I came up with.
I embossed the image and also used an embossing folder as the background. I wanted to make sure the sentiment would pop, so I decided to stamp it on the white card stock.
