It's A Wrap!

Merry Christmas!  So, about the time this post goes live, that will be about the time when I can say, "It's a wrap!"  That's when I'll be finished wrapping gifts and stuffing stockings.  I am the absolute worst about procrastinating on certain projects, let's just say, Christmas is always a project!  LOL!  It's not that I don't enjoy Christmas and all it stands for, I just feel like it has become far too commercialized and it's not enough about the true meaning.  I find myself stressing over whether or not people will love their presents and was I fair amongst the kids, etc, etc, etc!  And, since I'm always in a rush this time of year, it's helpful when I can create a card with my favorite Stampendous products that takes mere minutes to put together and is still appealing to me.  Today's card is one of those cards, quick, easy and still sweet!

Here's what I used to create this card:

Memento™ Tangelo Ink Pad by Tsukineko®
Recollections™ Jolly Holiday 6x6 Paper Pad
Pink Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper®
May Arts Ribbon®
Inexpensive Watercolor Set
Zip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesives
Scrapbook Adhesives® 3D Foam Mounting Squares by 3L®

Here's what I did to create this card:

Trim a piece of white paper and wash some watercolors over it.
Die cut the presents and bow and adhere bows to the gifts.
Trim a piece of pink cardstock to create an A2 card base.
Attach a piece of ribbon to the piece of watercolored paper.
Adhere this to the card base.
Attach gifts to the front of the card.
Stamp sentiment in orange ink over largest gift.

Here's where you can find more inspiration today:

I love the non-traditional colors I've used on this card!  It just makes me happy!  I hope you enjoy it, too.  I sincerely hope you have the merriest of Christmases!  I'll see you next year, have a wonderful weekend!
