Christmas Baking...

...and the card to go with it!

No, relax!  I didn't start my Christmas baking yet.  I won't begin that until a couple weeks before Christmas.  It's usually one of the last things done in preparation for the Holiday Season.

When I saw this ribbon (thank you MarianneI thought it would be perfect to add to a card and to use it to tie around a wrapped hostess gift or two.  I think there will be many uses for this ribbon over the Holiday Season but today I'm going to show you how I used it on a card.

This is the same style of wreath from last weeks post that had the tutorial included.  I've added a few fun embellishment and the Christmas Treats ribbon.  I think this card will be perfect to add to a Christmas tray of baked goods.

A closer look at the bow and you can even see one of the bells there too.  Last year I picked up a package of tiny Christmas embellishments at the dollar store.  The package was full of red and green bells (that jingle), small Christmas trees, rhinestones and clothes pins to name a few.  I think they'll come in quite handy this year, they really are adorable.

Next on my list....3" X 3" Christmas note cards.

Wherever you are in your day, I hope you're enjoying it!
Wishing you many wonderful creations
