Alrighty, blog world, I know you are all counting down the days until Christmas, right?!?!? My answer is Heck, no!!!
But I did make these projects for some challenges – both requiring a word die and the only one I have says Merry Christmas – so I decided to go with that!!!
First, I made this card by gluing SU! twine in random swirly patterns on a white card front. I then glued that to a folded piece of gold SU! cardstock and sewed the vellum strip onto the card and then added the words “Merry Christmas”, that had been cut out with a word die, over the vellum!! The final touch was a mini gold jingle bell tied with gold thread and glue dotted on the front over the i! I think it turned out great! Here it is:
I am entering this challenge over at Moxie Fab World:”Wonderful Words Challenge” ! Feeling wordy – you could come play too!! It ends on Sunday, July 20th at midnight EST!! Hope you decide to join in the fun!!
My second project is a tag with words – I am linking it up over here at the new challenge blog Tag You’re It!! challenge # 1
Here is what I made – A Merry Christmas Tag with a jingle bell and some SU! twine. Check it out:
I used the gold rectangle negative from the words punched for the above card, layered it on vellum. Then I sewed that down onto a Forest Green tag. I cut out Merry Christmas from red cardstock and glued it inside the negative!! Then some twine and a gold jingle bell!!
E TA – I have decided to enter the Christmas card over at Virginia’s View Challenge – # 5 Die Cut
Also linking the Merry Christmas card up over at Simply Create Too: Challege # 65 – Christmas in July
What do you think? I am pretty pleased with myself because this is my first experience with word dies – but it went pretty great!!
Thanks so much for looking! Leave me a comment letting me know what you think, ok?!?
