My last Christmas Share
I was going to share these with you yesterday but I don’t know somehow I just wanted to rest and relax. It seems to get very busy leading up to Christmas and it was nice to have a day to do nothing. Of course, the fact that it was super hot didn’t help.
I wanted to add some festive lighting to our patio on Christmas Eve, so I brought out my Festive Flurry stamp set and matching framelits. I cut the largest and second largest framelit from Cherry Cobbler card. I stamped the largest image onto Whisper White card using Cherry Cobbler ink and cut it out using the matching framelit. I wanted to be able to sit my battery operated Tea Lights into the holder but I didn’t want to glue them because I wanted to be able to turn them on and off. Soooo, I traced around the tea light base onto scrap card and then centred it onto the stamped image and the smaller of the Cherry Cobbler framelits, traced around the template and then cut the circles from the middle of each of the pieces. Once that was done, I attached them one on top of the other using dimensionals. This gave me the perfect place for my candles to sit and the were held in place by the framelits around them. I think they look cute and they were very pretty when turned on after dark.
My granddaughter Abigail helped me some candy wrappers using the Envelope Punch Board to add to our table on Christmas Day. I cut them from Real Red Co’ordinations card and then embossed them using the Beautifully Baroque Embossing Folder. We added a Lindt chocolate to the middle and tied them using Silver Cord (retired). They looked very pretty on the table but the chocolate had to go in the fridge, because it was so hot and they melted. Never mind!
I hope to be back soon with some new projects using other than Christmas supplies.
Bye for now,
