perfectly patterned presents !!

  • paper artsy JOFY 'jm30' rubber stamp
  • paper smooches wise dies -Christmas words 2
  • lawn fawn lawn cuts - small cross- stitched rectangle stackables & small cross- stitched circle stackables
  • HOTP patterned paper
  • vellum
  • white glitter cardstock
  • 6x4 white landscape card blank
  • archival jet black ink pad
I cut the white glitter card to fill the front of my card blank and gutted it. I then added a matt of patterned paper which I had die cut using the stitched edge. I cut a circle of vellum using one of the stitched edge dies. I also die cut the sentiments from white glitter cardstock. For the image, I stamped the presents onto several different papers, which coordinated with the background matt. I then fussy cut these out and paper pieced them together, to give the effect of different wrapping on each of the presents. I then assembled all of the pieces onto the card blank, following the sketch layout and glued down to complete the card.

I would like to enter the following challenge:
