My Time Made Easy Preview: Insert Card Here

Hi everyone!  The My Time Made Easy design team is back in swing again previewing products from the new December release.  There's tons to choose from, so you'll probably want it all!  And you can have it all...tomorrow!  Just select, pay, download, and start crafting!

Today we are all previewing the newest template called Insert Card Here.  You'll see in the next photo how it got it's name.  It's a nifty little box.  I started with some new paper called Flakes and Fuzzies.  There are three color versions of the same patterns.  So many wonderful patterns and colors to choose from!  I chose this Snowcomb pattern and cut my template from it.  To make the fabby bow, I first printed another pattern from the same pack called Weave then used the new Bow-Tied cut file to cut it out.  It's so easy to pull together and there are a couple of design options to this bow.  Lastly, I cut a snowflake from the new It's Snowing cut file.  I resized it a little smaller to fit in the middle of the bow.  Then I covered it with some chunky glitter and adhered it to the bow.
Now for the inside.  Here is where you will see where the template got its name.  There's an insert that goes inside to hold a gift card!  This is the way the box was intended to be used, but take out that insert, and you have a nice little box to hold all sorts of goodies!  The sentiment is from the new Warm Sentiments digital stamp set.  I sized it to fit within the lid and colored it in GIMP using the colors of the paper.  And inside the box, I placed a gift card and a little Santa chocolate bar (which I am eating as I type this!). 
If you want simple, you have it with this little box.  It takes minutes to pull together and presents itself so nicely!  For more inspiration from the design team, stop by their blogs.  Thanks for stopping by!  We'll be back tomorrow with the official release day group post!  Hope to see you then!
