CASual Fridays Partridge In A Pear Tree

Thanks for stopping by!  The CASual Fridays Design Team is showing projects made with the new Holiday Release that comes out on Saturday, July 16 .  There's TONS of great stuff so see!  Today we're showing the new "Partridge in a Pear Tree" and "Starlequin" stamp sets!  

Isn't this a sweet image? It's a clean line drawing so it's super easy to color with markers, or emboss and watercolor. 
I colored the image with Copic Markers.  I chose blue for the little bird and color coordinated the background papers to match.
The set has a some cute accents like a separate pear, snowflake and birdie and two pretty script sentiments.
I added simple accents to my card like a bit of washi in the corner - it's GOLD.  Sparklies are a must have for the holidays!
The Starlequin set is a holiday twist on the diamond harlequin pattern.  There are two borders in the set - one wide and one thinner.  I used the wide pattern on this card.  

I admit I love a CAS card for Christmas - no going to the post office to have this one weighed and special postage applied. It doesn't get easier than watercolor! 
I embossed the border on watercolor paper (Canson XL) and water colored with Peerless watercolors.  The finishing touch was a sprinkle of Fun-Fetti sprinkles cut from gold foil paper.  

The Sparkle and Shine sentiment is from the new Christmas Sparkle stamp set!  I just love that font!!

Love the layering on the first card.
It is fantastic.
The green card really pops. Would
rather have a clean and simple card
than one that is overly-fussy.
thanks for sharing.
