Beyond Baskets 2 to make a large scene of presents, like waking up at Christmas (the puppy from Basket Buddies jumped in! Few things more magical than a new little pet on Christmas day, am I right?) Even though these are very large images, I love how perfectly they are proportioned for A2 cards, even when using several together.
Ans then add you third.
Now I want to add a print to the bag. Place the mask over the wrapped gift again,and place the negative portion, that is what was left over from another time you cut out the bag image over it so your background is covered. Stamped snowflakes.
Pull it away, ta da!
I was originally going to color the tall package but decided to use Kraft paper instead, I love brown boxes, which always means good stuff sent from far away! I like to color the handle the same color so it covers the stamped images, that way you have a coordinating handle and don't have to worry about masking that off, too.
Color! On the bow, use darker greens over the areas where I've added the hatch marks for shadows, and lighter green on the open areas for a very dimensional look. I popped up the puppy and the tag with some red bakers twine for a collar. Finish with a C-3 shadow underneath and a little W-3 on edges of the brown box to complete.
Isn't that just like a little Christmas storybook scene? Stay tuned for a very "Christmas Story" inspired card that i thought of while making this card ( that's "cardstorming", I guess, hee hee, can't wait!)
