Seasons Greetings! Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.
I have some other Christmas posts ready but may not get them published, though I expect everyone is mighty busy now anyway with Christmas preparations. I received more injections to my neck yesterday so my online time must be very curtailed.
This pretty image is taken from a paper napkin available here. Isn't she lovely.
Following the Servietten Technique I seperated the top layer of napkin and glued it to white cardstock using Ranger multi-medium matte. Once completely dry, die-cut and embossed the image using a Marianne Design die. Sprinkled on a pinch of white Frantage and stencilled some stars using a Heidi Swapp stencil. Coated the stars with clear rock glitter before the paste dried. Rubbed silved gilding wax to die-cut edge and burnished it well with cloth.
The lowest layer has been embossed with a Sizzix music folder. Again gilded the edges silver. Cut a round doily in half and adhered to base layer. Die-cut some glittery silver paper with Memory Box 'Star of Wonder', Memory Box 'Elegant Scrollwork' and Magnolia 'Sprawling Ferns' dies and arranged on card. Die-cut little stars from this glittery paper using offcuts from a Sizzix Triplits balloon die so some of the stars are white and some silver.
Added lace trim and tinsel trim to the left and placed a Swarovski crystal on star. The berries are by Magnolia and I've added some white stamens from stash too. Stamped the Joyeux Noël sentiment using a Stempelglede stamp set. Finally, sprayed some seam binding to a matching shade of blue and affixed. C'est ça!
Hope to pop around blogland in another couple of days. In the meantime, enjoy the happiness of this season and Stay Calm!
