It is that time of month again for the monthly Designer Challenge over at Elizabeth Craft Designs. This month we are looking and celebrating Classic Christmases. I decided to play around with the Winter Ornaments, because in my house, every member of my family has a box of ‘their’ ornaments. This is ornaments that they have been gifted over the years. My husband and I have a huge box, because each of us have ornaments here together that were from our childhood. And let’s be honest…it is not really Christmas Time until the tree is up and decorated.
Step One: I started out by trimming a sheet of Silver Gray Soft Finish Cardstock cut to 12×6 and scored and folded to make a 6×6 card frame.
Step Two: Pull four coordinating pieces of paper from the It’s Christmas Time paper pack.
Step Three: Die cut the base of the ornament two times out of three of the papers.
Step Four: Die cut the ornament toppers from the Winter Ornament die set using 85lb White Soft Finish Cardstock covered in Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
Step Five: Peel back the paper, and add Silk Microfine Glitter to the toppers. I used Leaf Green, Bright Cranberry and the Iced Teal from the Earth Glitter Palette.
Step Six: Using Kid’s Choice Glue, adhere the topper to one of each of the printed papers.
Step Seven: Using the three other ornament bases, distress the edges of the ornament with Distress Ink. I used Aged Mahogany, Broken China, and Forest Moss.
Step Eight: Using the fourth piece of printed paper, distress the edges with Aged Mahogany.
Step Nine: Using 10mm Clear Double Side Adhesive, adhere the fourth printed paper over the 6×6 card frame. Then using 6mm Clear Double Side Adhesive, adhere the ornaments over the paper, letting the ornaments over lap.
Step Ten: Die cut your sentiment using the Words 5- Winter Wishes sentiment die set. I die cut the words out of both Soft Sky and Misty Mauve Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere the sentiment so it overlaps each other using Kids Choice Glue.
