Stacked Presents Collection

Now I'm back into "Cardmaking Mode" again, I've decided to do what my husband told me to do a long time ago and make several of the same design of card all at the same time. My problem is I make one card and spend too much time thinking about it and moving things around. So with this set I've used the same design and just used different papers.This was my first attempt, I wanted to go for a very basic look. I've used DCWV Rockstar foiled cardstock to create the presents. They are mounted on foam pads to add a bit of depth, onto a plain white card, eek!
This is version two! My preferred choice as you can tell by the next two cards that follow! I've used some Kraft card for the base layer. The papers are a download, I really love these colours. The sentiment is from a Hero Arts set.These cards are great for using up scraps of paper! I have had this Making Memories set in my drawer for quite a couple of years now. Nice to see it finally getting used!And the final one, although I'm not too keen on the orange ribbon. I have straightened it up since I took the photo though! lol

Thanks for looking.

Great cards Zoe. I too have decided to make multiple cards of the same design whilst I have all my craft stash out! Builds up the birthday box much quicker, and it's definatley an advantage at christmas!
Hugs, Vicky ~x~

Hi Zoe

Great cards. Your first one is my favourite.

That is what I try to do .. .. make a few the same whilst I am at it .. .. but unfortunately it isn't always possible.

Love Jules xx

Oh these are fabulous Zoe! I love the clean lines and your design. I especially like the blue and kraft one closely followed by the one with orange ribbon x

I love these. The simplicity of them is just perfect.

I can say, I also have the same problem as you, I spend so much time deliberating on what to do on a card that I end up doing none. I'll have to try your hubbie's suggestion too.x
