hi everyone, ok this will be the quickest blog post ever!
in part one of this blog post i showed you a christmas banner that i made for a lovely helpful friend and her family…….
well here is the second part. do you remember i said she likes stags and is decorating in red and white nordic theme for christmas? I had a think and a thunk and looked on my silhouette cameo library and couldn’t quite find one i wanted BUT….low and behold there was THE most perfect one this week, so i downloaded that.
i only took one picture – here it is!
i used american crafts white textured card stock i buy my white card in bulk and this time tried the scrobby store from the netherlands. it worked out a great price when you order in bulk and i got a couple of other bits and pieces too so i had free shipping. the order came within 5 days so is totally acceptable – i was chuffed to bits! the stag cut like a dream, the intricate pieces came off the cutting mat perfectly.
i used a random sparkly snowflake just to add a more wintry touch. I had a new shadow picture frame but it was in natural wood so i grabbed some white acrylic paint and gave that a couple of coats.
for a final touch i added their names in white puffy alphabet stickers.
all in all it was very simple to do but the look of utter joy when i gave it her yesterday made me so happy!
i love hand made gifts and am enjoying watching inkie quill at the moment as she is doing 12 days of handmade christmas gifts, love her channel! here is the first video, click and have a peek!
