Heartfelt Creations_A Gift

Today is Heartfelt Creations Wednesday and I would like to share an idea for some quick and easy cards.  In each of Heartfelt Creations paper packs there is a sheet of twelve beautifully designed 3" x 4" tags.  I simply stamped and embossed a sentiment, added a punched border on one side and stitched some gold embroidery floss through the holes (love punches with holes!), added some glitter, layered on the card and then added a bow.  Quick and beautiful!

These would make beautiful gift sets; I'm especially thinking of a dear, sweet widow lady who lives in a nursing home.

I made a gift bag to place them in, again using one of the tags for the front.

You'll find a list of products and the directions below.
