Sneak Peek - That's a Wrap!

    
ThatsAWrapGraphic


We've arrived at the last day and "that's a wrap" on our September New Releases!  We know you've enjoyed this fun and festive week peeking at five fantastic new sets. Our last set is ready for all your pretty packaging.  This 4 x 6 set illustrated by Marcella Hawley is the perfect companion for any gift or Christmas greeting, wrapping it up in style with a fancy bow, jingle bells, elegant flowers, Christmas boughs, a terrific tag, as well as two seasonal sentiments.

Here's my That's a Wrap creation!  


I went a little out of the box for my card and decided to show off another way to use the set with the adorning elements being the focus rather than the bow.  I began by using the Silhouette file for this set cutting out 8 of the berry and ivy elements on Flourishes Classic White card stock.  Then I stamped them with Memento Tuxedo Black, and coloured them up with Copics.  


To incorporate the "ribbon" stamps I stamped the longer section (part of the bow stamp) vertically down my paper, then I masked that section and came back with the smaller ribbon stamp and stamped on each side of the vertical piece but horizontally.  Then I placed my holly pieces all around the wreath to get a feel for where I wanted it to go.  That helped me decide how much to color of the ribbon.  After colouring, I placed each wreath piece down, one at a time with adhesive dots.  

I added the tag from the set tucked under the wreath stamped on Flourishes Color Made Easy - Emerald Coast card stock.  


The designer paper is new in the store, Teresa Collins Memorabilia, matched with some enamel dots from the collection and some lovely velvet ribbon.  I think that all Christmas cards should have something lush on them.  :)
