We're so glad you could join us for the final Pals Blog Hop of 2012! Today the Stampin' Pretty Pals are excited to celebrate all of our favorite occasions of the year! And what's a little celebration without some sparkle?!

You've probably hopped over from Kerry Willard Bray at Stampgoodness, I'm stop number 6 on the Pals Hop and I'm glad you hopped in! I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for Stampin' Up! products from the Stampin' Pretty Pals! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you'll be back on track. 

My December Celebrations project is a Holiday Gift Card Holder. Just untie the ribbon and reveal the special gift card inside...I got the instructions for making this project from a YouTube tutorial by Dawn Griffith.

For my project, I started with Cherry Cobbler card stock which was cut and folded to make the card holder.  I then embossed the front with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder adding a band Champagne Glimmer Paper to add a bit of sparkle.  One more time through the Big Shot using the Top Note Bigz Die to get the final shape.

I embossed the sentiment using Stampin' Emboss Powder in gold and tied the ribbon up with 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon in Very Vanilla.

Here's what it looks like inside. Just tuck your gift card inside the slot and wait for the big reveal.

A Christmas angel and a prayer

I'm so glad you're here. Today I'm sharing my Christmas angel card and prayer.

First I will share the Christmas angel card. I hope you like it.

I got the idea from a card posted by Lee Ann Barrett on Splitcoaststampers.  I changed up some of the elements, but kept the same basic format. I used the Candlelight Christmas DSP for the paper. The angel stamp embosses really well and makes such a nice image for a holiday card.

Products used to make this card

Stamp sets:  Rejoicing with You (Clear stamp item 126302, wood stamp item 126300)
Designer Paper: Candlelight Christmas Designer Series Paper (126901)
Card Stock: Brushed Gold Cardstock (102935), River Rock (108640), Cherry Cobbler (119685), Very Vanilla (124301)
Ink: Early Espressing Classic Stamp Pad (126974)
Misc: Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder(109129), Apothecary Accents Framelits (127003), Paper-Piercing Pack (127857), Very Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon (120999)

My prayer for you this holiday season is the message stamped on my card:

Remembering with you the birth of our Savior 
And wishing you all the gifts of His Love

I especially like thinking of the "gifts of His Love" as it truly the greatest gift is God's love to us.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Hugs & blessings, Angela
