All Wrapped up

I love playing with new paper!! I wanted to try a slightly bolder color palette since I tend to lean toward greens lately, so I chose this fun yellow and red combo from the Everafter line by Cosmo Cricket and matted it with Birchtone Dark (Prismatics). I used Neenah Natural White for the card base, and ink distressed all the edges with Old Paper (Ranger Distress Ink).

I love how versatile the All Wrapped Up set by Flourishes is. These packages can be used for birthdays or Christmas, or even just a thoughtful gift for a friend. I stamped the stack of packages twice with Tuxedo Black (Memento), colored with copics, and added a touch of glitter and dimension. The filigree brads are by Stampin' Up, and their centers are Candy Dots (Pebbles, Inc.). The grosgrain ribbon is Lemon Tart by Papertrey Ink, and the photo corner was cut with a decorative scissors.

edit to add: I used the edge of the Provincial decorative scissors by Fiskars for the photo corner.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
Come back tomorrow. I have a project to show you that I just fell in love with.
Happy stamping my blogging friends!!

Lovely card and it feels so Springy! I've never seen decorative scissors like the one you said you used in the corner. I must know how you did it!
