ODBDSLC219-Christmas with ODBD stamps. Come on and join in the fun!
ODBD products from the last several releases. I used light blue card stock and cut three Flourished Star Pattern die cuts. I then took paper from the ODBD Christmas Collection 2014 and cut out three stars. I centered these on the center of the blue stars and glued them down. Once the glue was dry, I cut out the center with another star from the same die set and scored each blue piece down the certer vertically. I carefully folded the pieces and began to glue them together. Before I glued the last of the panels, I strung a beaded angel onto silver cord and glued it into the center of the piece. I simply tied a knot in the cord so that the angel stays put in the center of the open star. I looped the top of the cord over and back down into the card so that a tiny loop is left on the top of the card. Now the card can easily be hung as a Christmas decoration or it can sit nicely on a table. I cut tiny stars with the Splendorouse Stars Die and glued them down to the small star shapes of the Flourished Star Pattern die cuts . I added light blue bling to the center of these for added sparkle. I created the poinsettia with the Peaceful Poinsettia die and more of the Christmas paper. I sponged light blue on the die before removing the poinsettia pieces so that the veins of the petals showed through. Another piece of light blue bling finished the flower and I turned my attention to the sentiment. I used the Mini Tag Sentiments stamp set and Mini Tags die on white card stock. I then sponged the tag and tucked it under the poinsettia. I sat and looked at this card for three days and wondered what to do with it. I liked how it turned out but, it still needed something. I pulled out my fine glitters and finally settled on using this custom blended blue that I made. It has three shades of blue and even some white glitter blended together.
Aaah, now it's a festive Christmas creation. I think it would be pretty hanging on a tree or sitting among the fireplace mantle greens! How about adding a couple of dimensional star ornaments hanging from the bottom in a line of three as a mobile type decoration? Yes, there are lots of possibilities!!!!
