Less is more this Christmas season.....

Hi folks, the craft industry may have slowed down in the run up to Christmas as folk beaver away at home making cards and gifts but the retail trade is gearing up for the busiest time of the year.  In my defence that is where I have been picking up a few extra hours at work.
Today I'd like to share with you a gift card I made this year for all the teenagers in the family to house an iTunes voucher.  Trust me these are real LIS more cards!  LOL.


I have included a pocket inside and a greeting.  The sentiment is by Creative impressions, the bauble is SU and the die is...dare I say...Marianne designs.  I have used Hologram Super sparkle embossing powder by PI with distress ink Iced Spruce.
I am really going through a phase of simple cards just now, maybe it's the time aspect?  I do like the clean and simple lines. 
I'm away today to catch up on a mountain of ironing, housework and Christmas wrapping.  Have a great Monday and thanks for the visit.  x

Loving your LIM card Erika. I feel all carded out and I still have hubby's card to make! I had to come home from babysitting yesterday and get my washing and ironing done as I had to work all day today. I was shattered, the post office is definitely not the place to work just now! The only thing keeping me going was the thought of going out for my Christmas meal with the WRI tonight. Which by the way was lovely!!
