I stamped the gifts in Stazon Black ink onto a Whisper White card front. I used Stampin' Write markers to color the gifts and I stamped the sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink. I mounted the Tempting Turquoise strip to the top of the card and then used my Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write marker to add faux stitching all around the card. I mounted the card front onto a heavy white cardbase (for stability).
I added one gift to the bottom right-hand corner of the inside panel and colored it. I added a strip of Tempting Turquoise polka-dot DP to the top inside panel and then added the faux stitching to the inside of the card as well.
I am thinking of re-vamping my labels (again!). They just don't seem to make sense to me anymore ... and they are such a huge list that I'm sure it isn't helpful when trying to find something on my blog. So, my plan is to actually take off all the stamps sets that I list in the labels, and add labels by subject (example: baby, christmas, masculine, winter, etc.) and by technique (example: technique - paper piecing; technique - watercoloring, etc.). I think it will make it easier when searching my blog for a particular card.
I would really appreciate feedback on this if you have time. Thank you!!!
