One of my favourite product suites in the Holiday Catalogue is the Joyous Noel Suite.  I was drawn to the pretty foliage in the Peaceful Noel stamp set, which really lends itself to stamping Christmas garlands and wreaths, but could be used all year round.  I also love the vintage feel of the Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Paper, but with a fresh twist of rich, intense colour and hints of copper.

The copper foil accents in this designer paper pairs so well with Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon, and the bags turned out so lovely that there wasn't much I needed to do to complete these gifts... just a pretty tag adhered to the front stamped in Merry Merlot, Tranquil Tide, Soft Suede, and Sahara Sand, and finished with a touch of bling from the punched sprig of Tranquil Tide Glimmer Paper.
