Welcome to Day 5 of the "Twelve Days of Christmas Blog Hop". We are so happy that you decided to Join us . If you arrived here from Mindy's then you are on the fight trail. If you just happened upon my blog and would like to join the fun then please start at the beginning with Lisa's Blog.
Today's project is a Decorating project, In October I decorated this for Halloween and thought why not do the same for Christmas
I used 2.5 inch strips of dark green textured card stock and punched both edges with Martha Stewart's Holly leaves border punch. I then punched trips of off white card stock with MS Eyelet Lace Deep Edge Punch and threaded sheer red ribbon through it. I used my new favorite cartridge for the holidays "Tis The Season" from Creative Memories for the letters. used the monogram shift key and cut at approximately 2 inches layering the pieces (cut from the same card stock just adding a dark red for the framing. Used Swiss dots to emboss the off white layer used a pop dot to attach it to the band wrapped around the candle, Quick easy and inexpensive!
