Handmade gifts are the best! Today, I’ll teach you how to create my Vintage Holiday Wallhanging. I’ll bet you have a couple of people on your list that would really enjoy and cherish this special gift.
The backdrop for each panel was created with the Peaceful Place DSP. Oh my gosh, that paper is beautiful. It’s a specialty DSP with lots of silver foiling.
Even if you don’t want to create the Vintage Holiday Wallhanging, you could use each panel for a 6″ x 6″ card. Just score a piece of 12″ x 6″ Basic White @ 6″ and mount the panel. Voila, instant Christmas card.
Because I used both the Christmas Season and Christmas to Remember bundles in my design, I was able to add beautiful sentiments and lots of leafy embellishments.
To create the “Merry Christmas” I cut three sets of the words using the Word Wishes dies. Just stack up the die cuts for a more substantial look. And I know you must have figured out by now, the Poinsettia dies make the most beautiful flowers. This time I’ve cut the pieces from Snowy White Velvet Paper.
Just that little pop of red makes this piece so vintage in my opinion. Can’t wait to share all the tips and tricks in my video tutorial. In today’s video, I’ll also highlight the Riverbend Nursing Home project. A big thanks to all that donated monetarily to the cause. Here is a recap of the project.
Ready to see who won the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine? I’ll announce that during my video tutorial.
