Bow Present Christmas Card

Created this Clean & Simple CAS Christmas Card using an Avery image, Red/White Bow. Printed the Avery Bow image on white cardstock. My It's a Mystery is how the bow looks like it is fussy cut & 3D but it's not; it is printed on the white cardstock layer. Used Tim Holtz embossing diffuser along with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder to give the gift present a polka dot look and not the bow area. Stamped a Hero Arts sentiment. Used a Stampin' Up punch for sentiment tag. Added some ribbon. Used SU dimensionals to pop up the present top and more dimensionals in center to pop up the bow even more.
