An experiment

An experiment in whether I need another stamp set. I guess most of you know the answer to that - I don't need another set, but ..... Anyway, I like the new PTI set by Melissa Bickford called Make A Wish. However, I wondered if I could make up a similar card to this one by Melissa with the sets I already own.



So here's my attempt. I used a bracket from Take Note, part of the dotted line from Merry Little Christmas and an ornate stamp from WMS Holiday Labels No.14 to make my stand for the present to sit on. I used square Nesties to cut a present and added a button and some sparkle.



I much prefer Melissa's card design and also the new stamp set and dies do a better job than my attempts too. So, my conclusion - I really do NEED that new set!

You are too funny. I will say you gave it the old college try and did a FABBY job with this card. I am trying to figure out if I need it too. I have a cricut and can cut all these shapes but the felt is what does me in EVERY TIME!!!

I love your card, and you were amazingly creative in finding all those elements. That's one thing I love about PTI, so many elements fit together in unexpected ways. Too funny: I had the same thoughts as you did, but didn't get around to trying it out, as I decided I did need the stamp set before I even tried.

What a very creative mind you have! I love how you thought outside the box and came up with a perfect CASE of Melissa's card! Beautiful job of combining sets to do this!

Oh my! I thought exactly the same, that I could achieve similar results with the sets I already own!! Love your result! Thing is, I wish they sold the dies appart... love the bows ones, but don't really need the square ones...

I was trying to do this in my head too! Except I was thinking of Betsy's tiered cake! And, I am still debating too. :) Great job, it's a beautiful card!
