I just adore Nina from Waffle Flower and I had tons of fun playing with their stamps! 
I had a very specific idea in mind once I picked up the First Step stamp set.  


I first fell in love with the bow included in the set and thought it would look amazing on top of a present. I looked at the rest of the accessories included in the set and realized that most of them would! 


I stared by stamping the present toppers and then used a T-Square ruler to create my own presents. I masked the presents and decorated my wrapping paper with some of the smaller images from Cold Hands. 


After looking at these cute little mice I couldn't help but include them! They just looked completely mischievous and honestly my kind of people haha! 


I was finally able to get this video edited though I basically told random stories the whole time haha. 
You can watch the card and all it's versions in the video below 


Even though I had to work through a bunch of things I didn't love it was worth it because in the end I had a card I did love. 
Don't start over peeps. You can fix it! 

Don’t forget Advent Calendar Extravaganza runs from 1st-25th December inclusive so make sure you visit taheerah-atchia.com every day for fabulous inspiration and amazing prizes every single time! 

Thanks for stopping in guys!
