A gift for the holidays

Recently, I made some gifts for friends - a box of handmade monogrammed greeting cards.  Being in the holiday mood, I thought it would be fun to do a twist on the traditional cards and nestled the monogram circle in a "forest" of trees. 

I hope you are on schedule with your holiday plans.  If not, why not whip up a quick batch of notecards?  Some beautiful ribbon, holiday printed paper, a few die cuts and a quick stamped initial and you're ready to go.  Not sure who your recipient will be?  Replace the initial with an appropriate short greeting and you'll have a wonderful surprise at the ready in your gift closet.

The trees and circles are from Accucut; the ribbon is from May Arts and the monogram border and initial are from Just Rite Stamps.

Happy holiday crafting!
