As you can see, I also distressed the edges in Desert Sand and colored my present somewhat similar. However, I added some rhinestones and some awesome patterened paper from Mistletoe's Level 2 Paper Pack (retired). This was also my first time stitching on paper and it was so easy! Using CTMH's new ruler with the holes and their piercing kit it looks pretty even. The embroidery floss is from the days I was obsessed with cross-stitch. I colored the present which is raised up with a blending pen.
