Holiday Cards Tied Up With String (Take #4)

If you're still with me, this is my fourth take on PTI's December 2013 Blog Hop using string on a project. Some dear friends invited us for breakfast Christmas morning so wanted to make them a special card to show our appreciation for their thoughtfulness. I included a digital AMC gift card so they can enjoy a day or night out at the movies. They were so surprised but loved it and as always commented on the card. They really appreciate the effort (and love) that goes into handmade cards. Here it is:

My card base is Soft Stone with a second layer of SU's Not Quite Navy, all rounded corners. I heat embossed in Metallic Silver the "Snowflakes Sparkle and Tree Tops Glisten" sentiment from PTI's In The Meadow stamp set and sprayed Silver Perfect Pearls so it would glisten. The Fancy Flakes die was cut from blue glittered paper from Joann's. To finish it off, I wrapped up the card with about three rounds of SU silver stretchy cord and tied off in a bow. 

Here's the inside of the card admitting that I had an ink smudge (oops) that I covered up with the leftover star from my die-cut snowflake.   

Edited to Add: Also entering this in Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge here using anything sparkly such as glitter, gems, stickles, glimmer sprays, paints, etc.
