The card I created ended up so fun and festive! I'm excited to share it with you! 

I stamped this stack of gifts using Arhival Black ink and used various methods to color in the packages. Our alcohol markers were used as well as some paper piecing (shown in the last image below). I love being able to add the different colors in various ways. 

The background patterned paper is from the newest Mix-Ins pack. (Click on the link to better see the patterns on this paper.)

The awesome gift image is from "Party Time" which can be purchased with or without the coordinating Thin Cut image. 

This is the other stamp set I used for "best wishes on your special day". It is called, "Celebrating You". You will notice I combined two of the sentiments. Fun, right?! 

Here is a close-up view of the details of the focal point. The small tag on the purple gift, the bow on the black package, and the Lagoon (turquoise) gift on top are all paper pieced. What does that mean? That means I stamped and cut out those images and glued them on top of the original stamped image. While it's not very distinct in the photo, you can better tell that little touch of dimension on actual card. I LOVE how this turned out and hope you do too! 

I appreciate you stopping by and would love for you to consider leaving a comment. Then, head on over to Cat's Blog to see what awesome creation she has to share with you. 

Wishing you all the best!
