That's a wrap...

 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.


I think for an entire release one of these times I am going to do it all in blues. I love the color I can't help it. So when I saw this ribbon in That's a Wrap I knew which paper and colors I was going to use right out the gates. I stamped the bow using Memento Tuxedo black ink onto some Bo Bunny Snow Day card stock and cut out the bow. I also cut in between the bow curves so I could run my silver cord around the edge to make it look like it was wrapped.
My base layer is the lightest color in Color Made Easy Rich Browns card stock and then some of the True Blue color for the outside wrapping. Tied my sentiment into the center of the bow and a silver cord bow. Voila!
