Welcome to Day 2 of the November Waltzingmouse SOAP. Back today with more Christmas creations!
Leading things off today is a card inspired by this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge (have you played along?).
I know I've said this before, but nothing brings me more pleasure than pulling out a bunch of WMS sets and combining little bits from each. That, my friends, is versatility!
For this card, I used images from Festive Foliage (one of my most favorite sets ever), 2011 Holiday Ornaments, Gingham & Co., and then topped it off with a big, bold sentiment from Say It Loud - Winter Holiday. Stamping happiness!
For my second project, I made a little shadowbox ornament perfect for the tree, to decorate a present - whatever!
I started by creating and assembling a little box, and then I lined it with patterned paper. All the images I used to create my little Christmas scene are from A Cottage Christmas. There are lots of layers and lots of glitter on this one!
A ribbon is threaded through the top so the shadowbox can be hung up. A bit of batting was added to the front of the shadowbox to resemble snow. This was a fun project, and one that would be great with kiddos! I can think of oodles of other Waltzingmouse sets that would be great for this project.
So that's me for today - as always, thank you so much for stopping by and leaving such lovely comments. I am working on the pattern for the box I shared yesterday, so I will make sure to let you know when that is ready. Thank you for requesting it!
