Create this Merry Christmas Card and Gift Tag using the Spruced Up Bundle from Stampin' Up! Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty

 My card and coordinating gift tag showcase my favorite season of Christmas!  1/4 inch strips of four different colors in varying lengths set the  canvas for these bright and cheery holiday creations. 

MY FAVORITE THINGS! The card and gift tag use the Spruced Up Bundle, one of My Favorite Things from the Holiday Mini Catalog.
