Christmas in July
Still on vacation but wanted to post this 3D ornament I made here this past week. I only had this one hexagon-shaped Magenta stamp (C14117-P) with me here and a limited amount of supplies; colored pencils, white cardstock, glitter and glue. I did manage to find a gold leafing pen and this red crystal at a store in town that adds a lot to this design. I started by stamping the image four times and coloring them with colored pencils. I cut two of the images out in the hexagon shape, leaving a border around the images to add the gold leaf border. The other two images were cut just using the center flower. I added glitter to the petals of the flowers that I left mostly white. I took a piece of white thread that I colored gold and threaded the red crystal onto it. I then glued five of the sides together of the main two images, with the thread between them, and once dried, stuffed with some tissue to give it some dimension. I then glued the final side shut and adhered the two flower images on either side of the ornament. TFL!
