A Trio of Christmas Cheer

A Trio of Christmas Cheer

Hey friends....it's Michelle back with you and this week we are celebrating all things Christmas....yup, I said it lol.  It is never too early to start on your Christmas cards, so whete better time than now, because we are closer to december than to January lol. 

For my project today, I used some of the EAP's (easy artistry paper).  These are the same as the stamp sets but the images are already (and may I add beautifully) coloured in for you and ready to be cut out.  They are great to use if you are stuck for time or just don't want to colour them yourself.  Let's get started, shall we!

Cutout the background from a piece of white cardtsock using the Speckled Canopy Background A2 die.  Cut 3/4" inch strips of green and red cardstock...3 of each.  Place each strip behind the diecut piece, alternating between them and adhere using liquid adhesive.  Each strip will fully cover one line of the diecut design.

Cut out the images from the Jingle Jewels EAP using the coordinating die.  There are 4 different colourways in the paper pack, so you get to chose which will suit your project best. I went with the silver and gold, to add a contrast to my background.  There is a coordinating stamp set, so alternatively you could stamp out the images and colour them yourself, if none of the colourways in the paperpack suit your project.

Chose a few of the images and punch a small hole in the top of the ornaments and then add a piece of twine to them.  My twine was a bit too thick, to I unravelled the piece of twine and got 3 thinner pieces.  String each piece of twine through the punched holes.  Diecut the sentiment from the Festive Flora EAP with the coordinating die.  

Arrange the 3 hanging ornaments on the right side of the background and wrap the twine around the top of the cardstock.  Secure the twine with some washi tape.  Adhere the sentiment overtop the arrangement and adhere using foam tape.  Adhere the background to an A2 (4.25x5.5") cardbase.  Finish it with a scattering of a few Meraki Sparkle Red Gems.  

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope that I have helped to inspire you in some small (Christmasy) way.  I wish you all the most wonderful and crafty day and until next time,  Michelle :)
