Warm Wishes Treat Tray

Happy Friday!  Gulp.  I'm so far behind on the website for tonight's release, it's not even funny!  But rain, snow, sleet or shine, I'll deliver!  LOL  I'm going to make this kind of short and sweet, since I feel a bit like the white rabbit from Wonderland today!

It's the last day of our New Release Spotlight Hops and today the Divas are featuring our new Sweet Scallop Tag Die along with stamps from our Autumn and Winter releases.  In addition to hopping around, be sure to leave a little love along the way to be entered in today's drawing!  And you might also want to check out the Verve Blog today to read more about our new die line... A Cut Above Dies by Verve!

My project for today features a tag pairing the Sweet Scallop Tag Die and the Winter Mittens set.  The mittens are paper pieced and I cut out the stamped hearts and covered them with Xmas Red Stickles.  The sentiment is embossed on vellum and layered over the tag and I added a felt poinsettia and button for a little accent.  The ledger paper is cut with the Sweet Scallop Tag Die and I then used the die as a stencil to pencil in and cut out a thin black mat for it.  I recently have fallen in love with Ferrero Raffaello Almond Coconut Treats (thanks Laurie!) and since they look like little snowballs, I thought they'd be perfect for holiday gift giving.  I created a cardboard tray to fit 2 packages of the treats.  I just measured the length and width, then added 3/4 inch on both sides of the width for the sides of the tray.  Then I just scored 3/4" in on both sides and added a punched border on each edge.  Next I simply tied it up with some May Arts ribbon, added the tag with some bowdabra silver cording and finished off with a prima flower in the center.

Okay, I'm last in line again, so if you've been hopping thanks so much for tuning in to our hops this week!  If you've just started, here's the list of Divas that are posting today!  Have fun and Mr. Verve and I will "see you" at the release party tonight from 9-11pm Eastern!  :)

  4. Hi, This is sooo pretty! If I were the recipient of this treat, I'd have to sit in awe of it for awhile before consuming it! LOL! I'd be trying to hang the rest on my tree (Christmas that is). Thank you for sharing it.
