Birthday Gift Stack

  Tuesday was my sweetie's birthday and I was running short on time to get a card made (I know, it's what I do and I didn't have a card prepared??).  I had some leftover retired Manchester DSP that I'm trying to use up to make room for all the new products that are coming in July.  And I also had a few scraps of Baja Breeze cardstock (will definitely be ordering more of this color as soon as I can) to use.  I made this card 4.25 x 4.25 square.

  I love to use the paper piecing technique on cards and it's a great way to use up some of those scraps since you usually only need a small piece to stamp on.  Line image stamps are perfect for this technique.  I stamped my image three time using Stazon.  Once on the striped piece of DSP, again on the plaid DSP piece and the third time on my Whisper White cardstock.  I used my paper snips to cut out the 2 gifts and adhered them to the image stamped on Whisper White.  The top gift was colored in using my Sahara Sand marker.  This panel was matted on a piece of Sahara Sand and then mounted with dimensionals on top of the base layer which I just put 4 basic squares on.  And there you have it.... nice masculine birthday card!
