Lawn Fawn Christmas gift tree for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

For this card I had a vision of Christmas tree shape, but after a lot of masking it ended up being just a big pile of presents. But I think I made it work anyway - LOL!

As my background is kind of bold, I didn't want to have the presents compete with such a busy pattern. So I left them white and only colored the ribbons. I also added a flat back pearl in a coordinating color. (Did you know, if you don't have the correct color, you can alter it with your copics) I also went over the entire pile with my clear wink of stella. Be careful though, the wink of stella marker may lift some of the color depending on what ink and pens you have used. However, just clean the tip on a scrap paper and you're good to go again. The glitter really made the pile pop against the background. I placed the pile on top of a stitched hillside border and the little penguin in santa hat covers the part that would make the entire hill look a bit loopsided. The sentiment from the Toboggan together stamp set would have been to long to fit and I wanted to keep the banner thin, so I used my Sweet Christmas stamp set and used the word "Christmas".

I hope you like it!
