Instant One Die Card

Okay, we're coming down to the wire for Christmas crafting, but I just had to show you this one die wonder.  The elegant die is an Impression Obsession die which I used on a sheet of green foil paper from the American Crafts 6x6 pad.  A Sizzix magnetic platform will make cutting out the foil easy because you can run it through several times without the foil or die shifting.  For the background I cut a piece of card stock from an Anna Griffin 6x6 paper pad.  The die cut green foil tree was run through my Xyron to apply a sticky adhesive to the back.  To take care of any extra stickiness after the die cut is applied, dust the card surface with cornstarch.
There was a piece of card stock left over that was just big enough to cut a bookmark tag. (See Paper Smooches die set in previous post.)  The NOEL letters were stickers from a Studio G set ($1.25  for a generous sheet).  A little gold ink was rubbed on the edges and a gold edged ribbon was tied on to complete the tag.  I've always admired the simplicity of the Japanese cards that I receive and I think that this card has a similar feel.  Perhaps I will be a good girl and craft a bunch of these cards and tags for next year since I never seem to be prepared for the holiday season.  It's never too soon to start....right?  Merry Christmas to all and to all a crafty New Year!
