Bah Humbug Challenge 35 Christmas Sentiments/Text
This weeks challenge over at Humbug Hall is to use Christmas Sentiments/Text. Now I've got lots of sentiment stamps but had seen an idea I liked so thought I'd give it a go.
I took some Christmas backing paper that went together and cut various widths (2 of each and only one of the central one) which I rolled up making sure I had some d/s tape at the end to stick it all together. I then die cut two mounts, one green and one red, from my Go Kreate Frilly Frames #5. I then used silicone to glue the tubes (for want of a better word.....) centrally on the smaller mount and then computer generated my Merry Christmas sentiment which I cut down to size, sponged with Distress Ink and added brads at each end. This was then placed over the tubes and stuck down onto the mat. I have used an 8x8" card blank and cut a piece of pearlised white card to 7x7", clipped the corners and added some border peel-offs. Edges were inked with a gold pen and I added an organza ribbon.
