PTI - Card Sets
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.
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!
