I've got a card and an ornament to share today. Keren has the sweetest Christmas images at Free Pretty Things for You. Isn't this the cutest manger scene?
I used microfine glitter and colored on top of it. You can see a complete tutorial on that technique in my post HERE. I printed Rejoice in gray on vellum and cut a band for my card. I also tucked a gold mini cupcake liner underneath.
You can download this oh, so sweet image HERE.
For the ornament, I'm using the red version of Little Miss Christmas. You can see more about Little Miss Christmas in yesterday's post.
The ornament is very easy to make.
You need white sticky back vinyl. You can find it several places including the Silhouette store and amazon. I like the glass ornaments for this - you could use the completely round ones - this one is kind of flat. I used a large Martha Stewart punch, but you could use dies or an electronic cutter too.
For this particular punch, I needed two to make a complete snowflake. Then I had to cut away the excess from around the punch. Peel off the vinyl and press to the ornament.
It's filled with little white pompoms. I'm thinking you could also fill this with red and green M&Ms for a treat ornament. What other ideas do you have to fill the ornament?
Little Miss Christmas is tied on with twine - wrapped a couple of times around the top. You can download the red version of her HERE. Visit Free Pretty Things for You for the magenta version. I'm showing a project with her tomorrow.
You can see the first part of the Christmas in July present in yesterday's post. I'm adding a kit for the Little Miss Christmas ornament to the giveaway.
