How to Make One More Christmas Card with Wrapping Paper

Welcome to the second day of wrapping paper inspiration for handmade Christmas cards! If you missed yesterday's post, go there first - but then come back! There are some tips and techniques on how to tame a wild roll of wapping paper for your cards and crafted projects. (Go - quick...but don't forget to come back!) 

Okay - for today's project I used the wrapping paper with another die cutting project. But this one, really, really rocked. I love using the Create-A-Bow and Create-A-Bow Mini dies from Fun Stampers Journey. (This card features the MINI bow.) If you've ever used a bow die before, you know that it takes a bit of sweet talking to get your cardstock bending, but not folding - but if you create a bow with WRAPPING PAPER, it's so easy and so smooth because wrapping paper is BEGGING to gently roll, and it's thin and a little glossy so the whole process is just beautiful! (And it LOOKS beautiful too!)
I was thrilled with how lovely it was to create this bow. I paired the bow with a sweet Christmas sentiment (Holiday Wishes), some die cut leaves (Detailed Foliage) Mirror Gold cardstock and an embossed panel (Mystic Impressions), trimmed at an angle.

Stop back again tomorrow for one last wrapping paper project (it's the coolest of the three, so don't miss it!) Pin this project if you love it, and stop by the Fun Stampers Journey blog for the scoop on how you can get the Create A Bow dies, wrapping paper, plus so much more on SALE this month, during our Pockets and Lockets promotion!!!
