On the 7th Day of Christmas

On the 7th Day of Christmas...

Last year I made a set of ATCs depicting the 12 Days of Christmas - this was Day 7:




This year I decided I would make 12 ATC sleeves containing some Christmassy ATCs...
Here is Day 7:




Recipe for each sleeve: 
Base: Flattened Toilet Roll inner matted back and front with papers from Couture Creations Merry and Bright 12 by 12 paper pad
Layer Two: I added ephemera from the matching set.
I added a wooden deer embellishment and gem to the front.



Inside - the ATC - this was beige card matted on both sides with papers from Merry and Bright.  This time I added cats from the Penny Black Fe-line die cut and added Christmas party hats using snippets of red and white sparkly card - a crafty friend suggested this!






On the other side of the ATC, my 7th Day of Creepmas... This uses an image from Hellgnome's Death Digis
 Yarrr!
printed, coloured with Copics and cut out. I added a party hat, again with Snippets...




Happy Crafting!

Crafty Hazelnut's Weekly Christmas Challenge #418


a new Christmas Challenge every Saturday!

Today Crafty Hazelnut brings a new weekly Christmas Challenge
with the theme 'Any Christmas Card or New Year'.

Do pop over and see the inspiration from my teamies!


Here's my card...




Recipe:
1. I started with a white card blank.
2. My next layer was '12 Days of Christmas' Paper from my stash. I had die cut a circle in the centre of this.





3. I printed the image with laser printer and then foiled it in red. I placed this behind the circular aperture. The image is the one for December's OutLawz Progressive Challenge. It is called The Conductor from Sarah and Star Stampz.

4. I then added little banners cut from white and the '12 Days' paper.




I hope you will join the
I will add this to The Outlawz December Challenge
