I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas

I've got a pile of chipboard shapes and other items that I've bought with an intention to decorate, but all they seem to do is get stashed away in a cupboard, and I forget about them.  Until I buy another one (or two) and open the cupboard again to find I already have one very similar.  Hmm!

Well today I've decided to decorate an oval hanger, and have created a really simple Christmas decoration.  I typed the sentiment, then printed it on cream paper, stuck it onto the hanger and cut around the edges.  I created tiny red card 'reinforcers' for around the holes where the ribbon is threaded but using two tiny red circle dies to create a polo or ring shape for each hole.

The little birdies are from Purple Onion Designs, and the snowflake stamps are from Card-io.  Finally I popped some stickles around the whole edge of the hanger for some sparkle.

This project is to support the H for Home challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge which starts today.

Project Recipe:
  • Images - Perch and Star & Sky from Purple Onion Designs
  • Typed Sentiment
  • Colouring - Copics
  • Stazon ink pad
  • Card-io Winter Flurry snowflake stamps
  • Versa Color ink pads in various colours
  • Ribbon (recycled from a box of Thornton's chocolates!)
  • Liquid Pearls
  • Black pen (faux stitching)
  • Circle nesting dies (to make red 'reinforcers' to outline the holes)
  • Chipboard hanger
  • Stickles
I've been inspired by:
Happy crafting
