Here's what we made:
Stephanie says, "Lauren not only wrapped my gifts in this adorable Yeti wrapping paper ... she also gave me a few sheets she Xyron'd to cardstock, so I could detail cut out all of these adorable picture frames to make a Yeti Family Christmas homage ... since the background of the wrapping paper was red, I used one of my *solid* red/blue Gel Press prints for my card base. A few sticker sentiments and a pearl for little girl yeti's flower in her hair finish the design."
Lauren says, "My friend Barb sent me a very pretty present wrapped in beautiful matte giftwrap which had these snow-dusted evergreens on it, and the minute I saw it, I started figuring out how to get the paper off without tearing or wrinkling it! There was a pretty big crease at the left edge, which I decided to cover with collagey bits. These include a serendipitous scrap from a French language children's book which says "The Christmas Tree"; some beautifully patina-ed sheet music and some of the amazing 1957 Christmas Seals my mom found at a thrift shop. The red glitter mat is another piece of careful unwrapping."
