Favorite Things Friday - Favorite Christmas Card I Made This Year

Ready for another edition of Scrap It Girl's Favorite Things Friday? This week is all about the favorite Christmas card you made this year.

This is a very clean and simple card, which is exactly why I love this card.

I started with a plain white card base. I ran a piece of white cardstock slightly smaller than the card base, ran it through my Cuttlebug with a Swiss Dots embossing folder, then adhered it to the card base. Next, I used a roller stamp to add the cute little reindeer. Lastly, I added a bit of baker's twine and the sentiment.

So what's your favorite Christmas card that you've made this year?

Peace Tile

Can you believer we're only about two and a half weeks away from the big day? Reality has finally set in for me, so now I'm trying to pick up the last few gifts and get my house ready for all my family and friends.

Part of getting the house ready is the decorations, and this 12in x 12in altered tile is the perfect addition to my decorations.

I started with painting the entire tile with a light blue and white acrylic paint.

Once the paint was dry, I rub on a design adhesive strip then layer on the silver and blue glitter.

Next, I paint a JnW Crafts cross with a silver paint pen and added a few dots of Stickles, then adhere it to the tile.

To finish up the winter scene, I add on a bit of Snow-Tex and set the tile aside to dry.

To finish the tile, I added a bit of trim and the sentiment.

Nestled amongst all of my snowmen, this tile will add to wintery feel.

Corset Photo Clip

It's the first of the month again, which means it's time for a new challenge from Scrap It Girl. The theme for December is wrap it up. I chose to wrap my clip with lots of twine.

I'm getting in the holiday mood, and what better to help with this than a fun Christmas project. For this photo clip, I used the JnW Crafts corset.

I painted the clip white, gave it a spritz of glimmer spray because everything needs a bitter of shimmer. then I just wrapped it a few times with some twine, added a couple of die-cut leaf sprigs, then added the sentiment.

The corset was painted with acrylic paint, then I added the ribbon binding, then lastly added a bit of Snowtex around the top. Super simple.

I can picture this sitting on my mantle with pictures of Christmas past. I can also see giving this away as a wonderful gift.
