A Present

Today's card features a stamp that I recieved for Christmas, called 'A Present' by Penny Black. I started by stamping the image on to a kraft card blank, along with a sentiment (from the 'Anytime Messages' set by Hero Arts), then I paper pieced the present using snippets of papers from the 'Happy Colours' pad from The Works. I stamped the bear on to a snippet of watercolour paper, coloured him using watercolour pencils, carefully cut him out, then added him to the card blank too.

Challenges for this card:


  1. Oh this is SO adorable Helen and so CAS. Right up my street. Great paper piecing using your little snippets.
