52 Christmas Card Throwdown Theme Challenge

It's good morning time, as my 3 year old would say...LOL  And it's time for another 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge and this week's challenge is a theme challenge and the theme is 'Gifts of the Season'. 

I was debating on weather I wanted to use an image with gifts or make some punch art and since I love making punch art; I went ahead and decided to get out my punches!  The punches I used to make the gifts were:

Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch- for the gift bow- cut the punch out in half
1 1/8" Square Punch- for the solid card stock (bottom) layer of the presents
1" Square Punch- for the DSP layer of the presents
Jewelry Tag Punch- for the sentiment
*To make the strips of paper for the ribbon on the presents I just cut those by hand*

Once my punch art was together I started assembling my card.  The presents were placed onto my embossed vanilla panel using dimensionals and the entire present panel (the chocolate chip layer) also has dimensionals under it.

My wild wasabi (and very vanilla) layer were embossed using my big shot and perfect polka dots embossing folder.   Along the bottom of my real red layer I used my scallop trim border punch and along the bottom of my very vanilla card layer I decided to add two rows of paper piercing.  I love adding paper piercing to my cards because it gives a little something extra without going overboard.

I hope you will play along with us this week!  The 52 Christmas Card Throwdown blog is one of my very favorite challenges and this week the other design team members had some really creative card ideas!

Have a great rest of the day!  My son has a soccer game and soccer pictures plus we are planning to clean up the yard and close up our pool so it looks like another busy weekend for us.
