Present Pile

I have a Christmas card to share today...I hand't made one in a few weeks, so had a little burst of Christmas crafting yesterday and got another three made. This one uses one of my favourite James the Bear stamps...'Present Pile'...which I coloured using watercolour pencils. I kept the card really simple...trying to get some more 'masculine' cards done...although there are quite a lot of layers! I used my old faithful Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' folder for the embossing on some Core'dinations card...sanding over the top, and tearing along the bottom edge to reveal the core. I simply doodled a couple of borders, and added a Lili of the Valley sentiment.
