I have been holed up in my craft area making Christmas cards like crazy. I have 40 done! Only 20 left before I'm done. I keep trying to cut my list down, but it always ends up right around 60 each year. Last year I went with different card styles for the first time. I decided I liked it and have been doing a little here and there for the past few months then got serious yesterday.
Everything is CTMH unless otherwise noted, so I am linking up to this week's Heart2Heart Christmas Challenge.
I cut lots of these ornaments. I made the topper by cutting Desert Sand paper with scallop edge Fiskars scissors, gluing a section to the top of the ornament, fussy cutting around the edges, and punching a hole. I also used Pearl Paint mixed with water to give it a shimmer. The Noel was cut with Artiste. I used a spray pen to spritz a bunch of colors, then dabbed with silver, bronze and gold pigment ink, covered it with clear embossing powder and heating. Again, I can't get the photo to enlarge for some reason to help you see it better. Burlap ribbon was cut in half lengthwise and tied with brown waxy flax through button holes.
I have 14 more of these ornaments cut. I'm not sure if I want to keep playing with new ideas or just choose one of the ones I've already done and make a bunch of the same. Before I do anything, I'd better clean up. This place looks like a tornado hit it!
Until next time,
