Happy Birthday during the Holidays

We have never been a family with Christmas birthdays but I remember one of my best friends having a birthday right around Christmas and how the number one rule was NOT to wrap her presents in Christmas paper. 

This card is modeled after one we did at Convention but I changed mine up to use some of the holiday papers that didn't scream holiday.  The trick to these types of cards is to stamp the bow first in the upper right corner of the card and then stamp and place the pieces downward and to the left. 

The big present is one of the papers in the Season of Cheer DSP.  The gold cord is also from the holiday mini as well and gives a great contrast to the Hello Honey pattern.  I also like that the color scheme in this card reads winter but doesn't read Christmas.  Mission accomplished!

The stamp set, Your Presents, works so great for holiday cards and tags but also works for other gifting occasions.  Saturday I'm posting a project for a bridal shower using it and the same Tin of Cards stamp set.  I like that it also has the patterned stamps in it so you can ink up the patterns and stamp on the present stamp to get the diagonal lines.  It's just a fun set to play with - maybe that's why it has a Joy stamp in it!

I used the white accents and the Tin of Card stamp set on this bonus card because several of my customers purchased it a few months ago and I wanted to make sure I kept giving them good ideas to use with their sets.  After all, that's what being your demonstrator is all about - keeping you using what you have and telling you what you must have next and how to use it!
