All Wrapped Up

It's another Stamp Simply challenge with Sharon Johnson. Today, your challenge is to "Wrap It Up". Wrap anything for any occassion. I chose to do one of these gift card holders (ie., gift card "wrappers") that I have been seeing around. I kept thinking they were so cute. And now I don't know why I waited so long to try it. This was SUCH a quick and easy project. I did a little searching and found this easy-to-follow tutorial.
I used one double-sided piece of patterened paper to speed things along, and topped it with this darling crossroads sign for winter, from Lizzie Anne. I randomly stamped the matching snowflakes on the inside as well. I added May Arts ribbon and a few snowflake crystals from Michael's. Paper is from Basic Grey.

See what the rest of the girls are "wrapping up" this week:

Janine
Julie
AJ
Tammy
Deb
Barbara

I hope you'll play along with us. If you do, please use keyword ssnotime114 when uploading to online galleries. Thanks!
