To add a little interest and bring your attention to the tree top, I notched around the tree by placing a Circle Nestabilites over the tree, tracing with a pencil and cutting. Then I used my brand spankin' new Classic Scallop Edgeabilities to cut and emboss the bottom . Love these!! LOVE! (oh, can't wait to show you all the cool things the Edgeabilities can do!) Last I tied some red baker's twine through a light green Pure Luxury Button (to pick up the pears) and tied a little bow. Card base is Lipstick Red. Cute? I think so! Like this set very much! (Of course the inside reads "...a partridge in a pear tree! Have a joyous holiday" :)
Next up we have one of the cutest "Free with Three" sets evah!! It's "Cool Beans"! I decided to paper piece the little coffee cup in three different Echo Park "Walk in the Park" prints and colored the coffee, beans ( E13 and E57) and spoon (W-3) with Copics. Tip: Don't forget to add a little shading with the W-3 over your paper piecing to make it more dimensional!
I put the cups and Pure Luxury Chocolate Brown mat at angles to go with the sentiment's and prints casual and funky feel, and sponged the edges to the Pure Luxury Tan Leather CS with Vintage Photo Distressing Ink to give the paper more depth and richness (like fresh brewed coffee, mmmm!) Brown baker's twine and a button to embellish. Have fun picking out three sets you love from the Gina K Designs store so you can bring this sweet set home! ;)
