Pretty Package

I'm starting to get really excited about the holidays! Yesterday my sweet daughter got out ALL of the holiday cookie cutters to inspect them and talk about which ones she wanted to use to make cookies - so I guess we'll be making lots of those for gifts this year! It will be so fun to bake them with her... I can't wait!

I used the newly released LAD set Christmas Magic for this card. It's part of the Katie Jane collection, which I absolutely adore. I stamped the sentiment repeatedly on the card base (thank goodness for the stamp-a-ma-jig!) and sponged the card edges. On the long piece I used a Martha Stewart edge punch and sponged the edges again.

My image panel and mat were made with Nesties and were also sponged. I stamped the present on a scrap piece, colored it with Copics, cut it out, and adhered it. I used the stamp-a-ma-jig again for the "Believe" sentiment and used Dew Drops to balance it out.

Materials:
  • Cardstock/Paper: Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Naturals Ivory
  • Stamps: LAD Christmas Magic
  • Ink: Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Brown Stazon
  • Tools: sponge, Copics (E33, E31, RV11), Martha Stewart edge punch, stamp-a-ma-jig
  • Accessories: Dew Drops
