I started with a grey piece of A4 card and smudged all over with Festive Berries distress ink. Then I arranged christmas sentiment stamps from Mark's Finest Papers Nutcracker, Holiday Tags and Dear Santa sets on an acrylic block, stamped and embossed with red powder. I cut up my sheet, at which time I realised I should have had it portrait instead of landscape. Duh!! Or I should have thought before I cut. Double duh!!
So I modified my original idea and made a package. I mounted my stamped panel on a gold base card. Then I stamped, embossed and coloured the candy cane from MFP Holiday Tags set. I stamped the bow on the same gold card, embossed and added it to the candy cane. I cut two strips of the gold card, about the same width as the stamped bow, inked the edges with black archival and stuck them to the card. I am hoping this looks like a wrapped package.
Now since I am a little slow to tidy up I am going to take advantage of all those little stamps on that acrylic block and I am going to make me another sheet of this fun background paper, portrait LOL
