Christmas Frame

I am really excited to show you this project for two reasons.  One:  I actually finished it before Christmas and Two:  it turned out exactly as I wanted it to.  You know how sometimes you have an idea in your mind of how something should look and the end product is nothing like it?  Well, this finished up just right.  I saw the idea on Nancy Riley's blog a year ago.  Have a look at her version by clicking HERE (but finish looking at mine first!)

Here it is...  It looks even better in real life and there's bling here and there to give it Christmas sparkle.

I took the glass out of the frame for the photos.  Scroll down for some close ups.  Love the Very Vanilla bird against the Cherry Cobbler.

This stamp set of the Nativity scene is a favourite for me this Christmas. 

Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding ribbon adds a touch of softness on the wreath.

I have used a Glimmer Brad for the centre of this flower.  The 3D Christmas tree is made using the Pennant Parade stamp set.

Sadly our star punch punches have retired.  The flower is made using the Doily Triple layer punch.

We can't forget Rudolph, made using the Owl Builder Punch.

And, of course, the owl himself, dressed in his Christmas waistcoat.

I had a great day today, running a free cardmaking class at the local library.  Some of the ladies had never made cards before and all of them did a fantastic job.  If you are one of those ladies popping in to see my blog, welcome! And do pop in again!

Thanks for stopping by!
