Sweet-Settings

Simple wrappings are a quick way to add festive (and delicious) accents to the holiday table.

HiddenTreat

Score a strip of white cardstock at appropriate intervals to accommodate the chosen treat.  While the cardstock is flat, stamp with designs and color.

Gloss-Finish

Note: Be sure to test on a scrap piece of paper with the coloring medium used as gloss varnish may bleed certain coloring applications/inks  i.e. watercolors, pigments.

After the strips have dried, fold on scored lines, glue and insert the festive treat.

For this sweet setting, Elizabeth used the following T for Transparent stamps.

    A really super idea & I can see it working with the little trees of the same stamp set. The glittery finish is quite striking & I love the sketchy colouring & double outlining with another colour on the various borders.
