Wonderful Life stamp set! It's not just for Christmas :-)

Hello there,
  I'm still alive, just! So this week I have been mostly working, finishing some magazine commissions, trying to get the house ready (ie: clean, tidy and finishing any last minute jobs that have to be done) for the Christmas decorations to come down from the loft and trying to kick this latest round of cold/flu. I have been powering through ok but today I am wiped out, hence sitting down and listening to Christmas songs while I'm catching up with my blogging ;-)!
Anyway, I do have a card for you today :-) If you follow me on social media then you will have seen my epic fail when I made this card. My original vision was not exactly like this but, can I say, what a save...
 I totally blanked when I upended the ink pad on this card, a lot of that was because I left it till just an hour before I needed it to make this card but, thanks to Rachel who suggested I cut the top off the stamped part and this is what I  ended up with :-)
So, to make this card I stamped the present stack at the bottom of this piece of shimmer white card, stamped it again onto a post-it-note, masked and restamped. Repeat 'till you are happy with your present mountain.
TIP: You may need two or three masks.
After colouring I added some dimensionals along the top of the gift stack edge and glued the bottom down flat.
Sentiment is from the "Happiest of Days" stamp set which I stamped and then added clear embossing powder to and heated it to to set.
There's a sneak peek on this card, did you notice that sequin embossing in the background #comingsoon
 So, I'm pleased with this card in the end, despite it's disastrous beginnings, what do you think?
OK, back tomorrow with another make,
'till then

Happy Stampin'
