The Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp this week is "Wrap it Up." I have a couple of parcel dies from SSS, and knew straight away that my SSS Pile of Gifts die would fit perfectly with the sketch at Freshly made sketches, which looks like this:
So here is my card.
It's a bit difficult to make out in the photo. The die is really a negative space die, but I wanted to use it positively, so I stuck the pieces of parcel to a piece of acetate, then attached that to the stripes with foam pads for a bit more dimension. Perhaps I should have adhered them to a piece of white card instead? Or maybe used stronger colours? I think it's a bit clearer in this picture.
Still, as is so often the case, it looks much better in real life.
Thank you for dropping by,
