Christmas Projects

Yesterdays open house at Cherish The Thought was very fun and I met some of the people that trade ATC at the Grind every month. We made 4 very lovely projects. The first was this Christmas Card which used sugar beads on the Santa image. The next station we went to was for this cute little ornament. We chose the image and frame we wanted to use, fit it to the back of the frame, trimmed and added the lace. We punched 2 new holes for the ribbon and covered the original hole with flat back pearls. The ribbon was added to the top and a tiny jungle bell was tied on with the bow. The third project was a postcard sized hanging. For this one we used a poinsettia die cut and ran the petals through a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The background paper was added, trimmed and edged with brown ink. The petals were also inked on the edges then glued on with double sided tape and green rhinestones placed in the centre. I added the family photo at home. The last but not least project was a postcard from a vintage postcard kit. We selected the image and embellishment to use. The image was cut to fit the postcard and sprayed with Glimmer Mist. All the pieces are edged with brown ink. We used copper wire for the hanger and tied the embellishment to a loop in the wire again adding a bell with the ribbon.

Lovely cards, Joanne! The lace tree is elegant and I really like that vintage Santa that you used to adorn one of your cards. I need to rumble around my stash and see what I can find to jazz things up a bit!
