It's a great way of using designer paper - strong geometric designs work well as would a bold floral.
I chose a punchy, stylised tree paper from the Be of Good Cheer range, added some seam binding ribbon in Cherry Cobbler and stamped the sentiment. Seam binding is the easiest ribbon for tying fast bows and it's quickest if you stick a length of it round your card stock with snail adhesive and attach a separate bow with a glue dot.
Here's what you'll need to make today's fast card
Stamps: Merry and Type (sentiment)
Ink: Cherry Cobbler (I used a marker)
Card stock: Whisper White
Other: Be of Good Cheer designer paper, Cherry Cobbler seam binding, corner rounder, stamp-a-majig

I think giving gifts is an important skill to learn so I've encouraged my children to think carefully about people and what presents might suit them from a very early age. It doesn't necessarily come easily however and I remember my oldest son, a Thomas the Tank Engine fan at three years old, being quite sure his big sister would like a train for her birthday! This is a bit of a running joke in our family and before his sister's birthday this time my son teased me by saying he'd be getting her the latest shoot 'em up xbox game!
See you tomorrow,
