Now that Halloween has passed, TV commercials will abound for the holidays.  Today's card is a CASE (copy and share everything), again, from the demonstrator exclusive website; Stampin' Connection. The gallery is FULL of thousands and thousands of amazing ideas!  Here are a few tips to making this card.  1) No embossing necessary for this card. I stamped the image in Basic Gray and markered it in. Because the gray is darker than the marker I went  RIGHT OVER the lines in the image which made it a lot easier to color. SIMPLE!  2) I cut the silver shimmer paper in small strips and just bordered the sides.  It's cut 1/2"x 4 1/2" and you'll need two, one for each side.  3) The new Stampin' Dazzle Markers are amazing!  Here I've used the silver one and created lines, using a ruler, to create 'string's that hold the ornaments.  4) The small tag is attached with a glue dot. 5) I used 10" of ribbon to make this bow, attached with a glue dot.
