Well, here I am back after I just told you all that I wouldn't be back until after Christmas, but today I made a couple more last minute things and I wanted to share them with you. My best friend asked me if I would make a card for a friend of hers. This friend had been teasing her saying that he needed a Rolex watch for Christmas, so she asked me to make a card that had a pop up of a picture of a Rolex. This is the card I made
The image is one from Squigglefly called Hang Ten by Cheryl Grant Alger. I colored it with Copic markers and chalked the sky and then added some white gesso snowflakes. The snow bank was glittered and then I cut up pieces of holographic tinsel. It was messy, but I do like the look! Here's a close up
The sentiment was computer generated. I then added a punched and glittered snowflake. I found a picture of a Rolex I liked and printed it out to the right size. Since the watch in the photo had little diamonds, I added some glitter to mine!
She said he loved it, so that's all that matters.
Then today I was wrapping gifts. I wanted to give twenty-five dollars to my boss's kids, but I didn't just want to give them money or a gift card. I wanted to present the money in a fun way. I have already given them a wreath that I made HERE , so I was playing around with different things to do and came up with these little Christmas trees.
I was in a hurry, but I think with a little more time you could dress these up by wrapping them with miniature lights, or something. I will try to get a tutorial up on these soon. The stars are a Spellbinders die that I applied yellow stickles to.
Here's a closer look.
Okay, I think I'm done now! Merry Christmas to you all!
