Holiday Card Series 2017 – Day 18 – Masked & Blended Stack of Gifts

Happy Monday, all! Today is Day 18 of the Holiday Card Series for 2017. For those who are are new to my blog and videos, the Holiday Card Series consists of 25 holiday card inspiration videos. I’ll be sharing holiday inspiration every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday until December 20.

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

For today’s card I thought I would created another “minimal supplies” card. All you need for this card design are some post it notes (or masking paper), some different colors of ink (I used five colors of Distress Ink: Picked Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon, Spiced Marmalade, Crushed Olive, and Salty Ocean), a black pen, and a white pen.

I love this stack of gift design because you can change up the occasion just by changing the colors of the gifts or by adding a greeting. I omitted a greeting on my card, but you could easily add a banner to the front of the card with a greeting on it.

Hope you enjoy today’s card! Thanks for stopping by!
