PTI - Card Sets

When I saw the challenge for card sets, I literally did the happy dance. I have a couple of friends that exchange small gifts at Christmas (like homemade jam, etc.). Naturally, they have come to expect cards from me. I figured if I did several sets now, I'd have a jump start on having them ready when the busy Christmas season rolls around.

First, I had made a card similar to one that Maile Belles did for the Trendy Tree Tops release a couple of weeks ago. It came to mind instantly as one that work great for a set.


On the bottom right hand of the picture is one of the envelopes. I used Simple Sentiments to match each card. It turned out so pretty in blues, greens & purple, that I thought I'd try making another set in pinks & oranges.


Fun, easy & versatile!

Next up, I thought I'd try Jessica Witty's set using the back of the butterfly die to emboss. Another new technique for me! I liked her colors so much, that I basically duplicated her card.



For my final set, I wanted to try Betsy Veldman's technique of stamping in the negative space. I looked & looked for a die and stamp set that would work and finally ended up trying Trendy Tree Tops. I do love that set! I really like how it turned out.



I'm going to package each of these sets in a large glassine bag and wrap some of my beloved baker's twine around the bag to dress it up.

I'm thrilled to have a head start on my gifts! Thanks for looking!
