I have always loved to read, so this stamp set excited me as it would be perfect to pair with a book for a gift! I kept the fir branch border white to appear snow covered, plus I wanted the book colors to pop more against the red background.

This little birdie is just the cutest and I'm hoping it will bring some sunshine to the recipient when I send it on its way! Even though this is listed as an "inside" sentiment, I chose to put it on the "cover"! When I'm thinking through a design, I try to get cues from the sentiment. In this case it mentions warmth and melting a heart, so that led me to use the sun ray die along with the color yellow. The base was stenciled with 3 different shades of yellow along with the hexagon stencil from Papertrey Ink.
