Are you ready for the hustle and bustle of the Season ahead? I should have prefaced that question with the fact that I love to see other people hustle and bustle…I rather prefer sitting behind the computer and ordering online LOL Free shipping, discounts and without the chaos 🙂 But I really do get that people love the thrill of Black Friday and getting everything on their list…my luck usually doesn’t run in that direction, hence the reason that I will be at home, buying for my three wish-listers:
I created this collage hanging with several of Vintage Street’s “Christmas” aisle items! First, I started with a sheet of October Afternoon’s Ring-A-Ling Paper and green Bingo Craft Cards. I made two different panels to get the length that I was wanting. After machine-stitching the two together, I embellished with a copy of a cute vintage Christmas card that I found on Pinterest. The photo was wrapped with Ivory Tissue Garland and Denim Twirly Twine.
The top was accented with a beautiful vintage bell…I attached it with a Glue-Dot!
To the bottom I stitched on a few old buttons with the same Denim Twirly Twine and added a border of Numbers Tinted Tape. Three of the punch out diamond shapes from the Party Games Sheets and Tags were just right for adding my kids’ names to!
I again used the Ring-A-Ling paper for the base and then topped it off with two glassine envelopes. To the inside of the envelopes, I added pieces of old sheet music and a scrap of patterned paper. After machine stitching each one, I added them to the card front. An X of Red Twirly Twine was stitched at the top and buttons were also stitched on with the same twine.
That’s all from me today! To our American friends, I hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a safe and successful Black Friday to you all 🙂
