Belli Challenge #106 - Christmas Embellishments
Today's Belli Challenge is to create a card or project with your Christmas embellishments. Don't we all have ribbons, buttons, chipboard, glitter, and designer papers that we bought for making our Christmas cards? Pull them out and use them up!
I bought this Penny Black pine branch stamp last year and never got around to inking it up. So this year I was determined to get this stamp inky, and I ordered some Christmas Ornaments #02 - Mini from Creative Cuts and More. I ordered these mini ornaments cut from tacky tape, which meant that these ornament die cuts will be sticky on both sides.
I peeled the wax paper off just one side of each ornament and poured some Martha Stewart glitter on them. After I stamped my pine branch, sentiment, and sponged the edges, I peeled the wax paper from the back of each ornament and stuck them down on the cardstock. Quick and easy! :-)
The layers needed a little extra distressing, so I used the Torn Frames technique from Technique Junkies on the white and brown layers. I love the contrast of this rustic, tattered feel with the elegant, glittery ornaments.
Come play along with us at the Belli Challenge blog. Check out what the other Belli Girls have created and leave them some love. By the way, when you enter in your order at Creative Cuts and More, use coupon code CC&M10Holly to save 10% off your order.
