Here is my card using MHK Designs paper set Stenciled Roses
The little gift boxes were my inspiration from our photograph, I used the gorgeous papers from MHK Designs to make my little parcels.
I printed four papers on one sheet of A4 thick paper, then cut four strips of greyboard in graduated sizes. I covered each board strip with a different paper and wrapped bakers twine around them all, making sure the small top one had a bow on it.
The background gave me a little bit of a headache, everything I tried didn't look right, so I printed an A5 size copy of our photo as a watermarked page using my word processor package.
This backing was then edged with gold paper and mounted on a card edged with Distress Ink Victorian Velvet. Each parcel is mounted on foam tape and stacked up on the backing paper. The tiny tag is from a pack of bits my Mum gave me with a tiny peel off greeting added.
Your next stop is Ruza. Don't forget to link up a project with us after completing the hop for an extra chance to win a mystery prize from one of our fabulous sponsors, too! Happy Stamping to you all! :)
