Reflections of Christmas - Day Eight

Up to day eight now.  Since I made all the frames to begin with, I've actually been able to keep up with making the ATCs and keep the project on track to get completed before Christmas.

My inspiration, as usual was a tag in Linda Coughlin's  "12 Tags of Christmas", since I am playing along with the Funkie Junkie's 12 Tags of Christmas challenge.

Inspirations from Linda's tag:  Tim Holtz Stencil background, sentiment, rickrack and stocking (since I was using the stocking die cut I didn't want another one on the ATC, so I thought - who fills the stockings?  Santa of course.

  • Trim:  Bo Bunny Woodland Winter
  • Back Panel:  Tim Holtz “Holiday Knit” Stencil
  • Decorative Cutout:  Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers  Mini Stocking
  • Reflection:  Printed in MS Word, Segoe Print Font
  • Pediment:  Tim Holtz Pediment die
  • Metal Sentiment:  Tim Holtz Christmas Word Band

Here's a closeup of the Artist Trading Card.  It hangs from a hook under the pediment,

  • Background:  Tim Holtz Sizzix “Dot Matrix” Texture Fade (not embossed, painted resist technique)
  • Father Christmas: Peddler’s Pack Rubber Stamp 2001
  • Stamped Sentiment: “Wishing You a Very Merry Christmas” - Bo Bunny Holiday Wishes
  • Sentiment Sticker:  “Stockings are hung!” Simple Stories “Handmade Holiday”
  • Red “Rickrack”:  Handmade with pinking shears

... and now for Part two of the accordion book with Frames seven and eight

Please visit Linda's blog to see the inspiration for my project, and of course go shopping at the Boutique!

Oh my, another beautiful creation. Santa looks so festive especially with the dog on his pack. I particularly like that Santa and believing in Christmas are integrated in this card. You take such care with all the aspects of each card-not just the art, but the thought too.

What a perfect take on my inspiration piece. The use of the hand knit stencil as a background is wonderful and your Merry banner is perfect. Very cute Santa and the the stocking is the finishing touch! Another terrific ATC!
