Day 10 of 20 Days/ 20 Cards...And Jesus Birth Curly Paper Wreath

It's the first day of December! 

It's hard to believe that Christmas is less than a month away... Although most of our snow is gone I'm still in the Holiday Spirit! Today I have a glitz and and more glitz to share. I was using Stampin' Up! Window Sheets and the thought came to me to cover a stamped image with a piece of Window Sheet. Well, that didn't do it for me so I Stamped the Snowmen on a piece of Window Sheet using Stazon Black Ink, let it dry and turned it over and used Sharpie Markers to color in the Snowmen.. I then adhered the colored Window Sheet on to Silver Glimmer Paper and then on Champagne Glimmer Paper. That was the look I was going for. I think some grandchild will love to get this card!  This week I have a project and tutorial on how I stamped and colored on the Window Sheets and made beautiful Glass Christmas Ornaments!

Baby Jesus Birthday Wreath

This concept of making a Happy Birthday Jesus Wreath came from our daughter, Pam. She is a Director and Lead Teacher at Bullfrogs and Butterflies Christian Learning Center.
We put our heads together and came up with a beautiful wreath that she can attach to a window on the main door. Parents and anyone coming in the building can see both sides. In my haste to get Pam the wreath on Thanksgiving I didn't take really good pictures. I do have pictures I took while I was making the wreath. You will see my stamping desk and the clutter in the background.

This view is the front. Happy Birthday Jesus wouldn't fit. I really like Jesus Birth
Because the wreath would be seen on both sides, I wrapped the wreath with retired Marnia Mist Ribbon
I tried several different fonts, colors, and wording for the back. Pam and I liked Celebrate the best. After all Christmas is all about celebrating Jesus Birth.

I really like how the back turned out. Celebrate will fit against glass and it is beautiful
I cut the Winter Frost Speciality Designer Series Paper about a month ago. In doing so, I cut the strips one inch instead of 1/2 inch wide. It doesn't matter so much the width but I ended up using more of the paper than I would have if I had cut the strips in 1/2 inches

I like to show the real close ups for our products so you can see the high quality and how beautiful they are. I am so proud to work for Stampin' Up! All their products are great to work with and I never feel like I am giving a card or making a second rate project.
