Bearing many gifts

Hi everyone! Welcome back...I hope everyone is in their own happy place because I am...doing what I love the best..tah dah..... making cards.

Day 2 of my 100 days of christmas ...I have come bearing gifts. Its a very bright and colourful card and at its centre is a bunch of gifts layered over each other.

The gift boxes stamp is one from the deep red cling stamps family. It features two gift boxes - one decorated with polka dots and the other with stripes, which I stamped on spare card stock, painted using peerless watercolour from the peerless water colour bonus pack of 40. I then 'fussy cut' the gift boxes images and laid them out on the card before I stuck them using glue and double sided tape.

Just a little heads up....I cut the watercolour sheets into small strips and laid them out on cardstock with their names written on the bottom as described on a blog or class I read or did...can't remember which but its a great suggestion. My fav colours are daffodil yellow, turquoise blue,chrome orange, alizarine red, gamboge yellow and grass green.

I added some glitter can use any one from your local art and craft store. The accent pieces on the bottom of the card is crafters companion green pearlescent card stock I bought years ago (just found a scrap of it so I used it...again some old with the new)and bazzill's gold foil card stock.

Its been a blast. Thank you for reading and see you tomorrow for the 3rd day of christmas.

Don't forget to leave me your comments.
