A Pile of Presents ........................

Molly BLoom Pile of Presents JOFY 40 by clare charvill
This was a fun little card to make.  I haven't done any colouring for ages, am a bit rusty so thought I'd practice on something small.  The pile of presents is a Molly Bloom stamp, the card background is from a card blank set by Paula at Whichcraft and the sentiment is from Jo's JOFY 40 stamp set.  
Here's how to make one: 
Supply List 
6" x 6" card blank
Scalloped card topper - Whichcraft 
Molly Bloom Pile of Presents Stamp (MB0042K)
JOFY 40 stamp plate
Copic Chao Markers 
YG17, BG72, BG01, BG000, BG02, BG09
YG03, G21, E43, E31, C05
R37, R17, RV42, RV02
Antique Linen Distress Ink
Ink Duster
Black Memento Ink
Glossy Accents and tacky glue 
Decoart Crystal glitter 
Derwent Graphic Line Marker.03
Start by dusting Antique Linen distress ink onto the card topper
Stamp out the Pile of Presents onto white card using black memento ink and colour in using your choice of alcohol pens or pencils.  Cut out once committed and mount on foam pads.  

 Stamp and cut out the Christmas wording and colour in using a red alcohol pen or pencil 
 Draw a dotty line around the edge of the centre square of your card topper using a fine liner.  Add a squiggle of glossy accents around the very edge and sprinkle crystal glitter over the top.  
When dry mount the card topper onto your card blank using a little tacky glue 
Add your pile of presents and sentiment to your card front. 
Highlight bows, heart and wording with glossy accents and leave to dry. 
I love the 3D effect on this card.  
Thanks for calling by.  We have another christmas themed project to share tomorrow so hope to see you then. :-) C
