Holiday Spirit Sentiments Day 3

The lead up to release time always seems to take forever from day 1 to day 5 of posts time flies!!!!  How are you all doing today?  Have you found something you know is a must have for this holiday season?  I know that along with my set I will certainly be adding some of the fabulous sets we have seen over the past few days from Nichole, Heather and Beth.  I am also LOVING the gorgeous previews we are seeing from the DT.

Today's project is quick and simple for those of you with younger children in the house...or if you are like me, for those people who live and love CAS! (clean and simple)

  1. Create card base.
  2. Create embossed/raised edges (see THIS tutorial)
  3. Stamp image and sentiment.
  4. Colour image.
  5. Attach ribbon.
  1. Cut 6 strips of .5 inch patterned paper.
  2. Make a ring and attach with a glue dot.  Repeat process to create a "ball".
  3. Attach twine at the top.
  4. Create embossed edges on cardstock and stamp sentiment.  Adhere to ornament surface.
