Here is a festive wall hanger made with three stout board bases joined together in a flexible way with Treasury Tags. This fits the bill for the Happy Little Stampers blog 'April Christmas Challenge' where you have to use at least one diecut on your creation ........ I lost count of how many I used on this project !
Seasonal Printed papers form the basis of a lot of elements and are passed through a Sizzix machine to produce a lot of the die cut embellishments. I have used mainly Sizzix dies for the snowflake rosettes.
Some heat embossing was used on some of the plates and some stamping of Seasonal sentiments is also used using Stampin' Up inks.
The snowman was die cut from Kraft card and decorated with black buttons and white paper which has been pinked with a pair of pinking shears.
Some of the layered snow flakes rosettes consist of laser cut wooden elements too !
I made extensive use of a hot glue gun to adhere the decorations.
I also used embossing folders to provide some texture on certain areas.
The bottle brush Christmas Tree was made using a method devised by Effie of Efemera Ink and the instructions are HERE on her blog. I think she is sooooooo .... creative !
Bit of a labour of love but I think it turned out ok. Hope you like it.

I love nothing better than to escape into my very untidy craftroom and mess around with stamps, inks , paint, fabric & anything else that's crafty for that matter!
