Christmas Friends

Christmas Friends: "

It is countdown week for all of the new Papertrey goodness, and I am back today to share with you my projects using Tiffany Pastor’s new set “Christmas Friends.”

Christmas Friends is essentially a Christmas set of fun images and flourishes and a nice grouping of sentiments. Sort of a one stop shop for Christmas images which include ornaments, birds, bows and flourishes. Here is a card I made using a bold red and white color scheme. This along with a couple of rounded corners gives the images a more MOD look.


If you are creative with these images, you can also think beyond Christmas. The “Friends” sentiment really helps out a lot in taking this set to a year-round go to set.


I did some unconventional things here. I stamped the bird and cut it out, along with trimming off the tail feathers. This allowed me the opportunity to use a flourish as feathers. I also drew in long legs using a straight edge and a brown prismacolor pencil. I then colored the feathers with prismacolor pencils and used odorless mineral spirits and a blending stump to soften and blend the colors together. I then finished the card with a home made embellishment using the Marvy flower punches and some festive Martha Stewart glitter. Who would have thought that a card like this came from a Christmas set. I hope you liked what you have seen all of this week! Any favorites or must-haves for you?
