This is a Spellbinders Pear Nestabilities die I got a while back and never had a chance to use. I'm using one of last year's sentiments from Quietfire Design, "12 Days of Christmas set" - love it. I finished the card and was looking at it and just burst out laughing... I had the words for the inside. (this would be an inside joke for my friend whose getting it)


  

   

I die cut & dry embossed several medium sized pears and sponged with Distress stamp pads (Shabby Shutters & Forest Moss). Adhere one to the other to get the 3D shape.

Stamped the bird flourish (Inkadinkado "Winter Birds" set #98396) with gold and gold embossed, then over stamped with some black on a deep olive cardstock. Layered that to a bright red cardstock and then onto a deep forest green card. Adhered the 3D pear. Stamped the sentiment with Versafine Black Onyx. Wrote in my words with a micron pen in a funky monoline, then shadowed one word with an Inkssentials white pen.

Words: "On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me a"
then the stamped sentiment "partridge in a pear tree"
Words: "on the second day of..."

now this is what made me laugh
Words on inside: "Christmas he forgot about me"
