Hi Roadies! Here's Belly on the blog today. Christmas is coming in a month, you are making Christmas cards, right? But I love making decorations instead, wreathe or banner may be my choice. This is the season that you can easily find something low cost materials from theft stores, flea markets or dollar stores, it would be great to grab some and alter to any style you like.
I am lucky to have this beautiful vintage snowflake hanging decoration from a Salvation Army Store in HK (or unlucky that we don't have theft stores or flea market here), I love it on my first sight, I knew I want to alter it and hang on my front door.
What a cutie and colorful Christmas color combo by using the Maya Road Sunshine Yellow Oh Deer Resin Charms, Maroon Red Felt Roses, Lime Vintage Burlap Trim, and of course the Barn Red Sparkle Sequins Trim gives a great background which tuned down a bit the vintage feel, let the wooden snowflake matching to colorful embellishments perfectly. The White Framed Sayings Transparency Pieces are such a great accents to form sentiments on the piece, and you can still see through what's behind. Adding some more woods, metals and golds to balance the colors.
Christmas green is a must in this season, I die-cut a few leaves and insert here and there on the piece. Is the leave shape SUPER COOL!?!?!? ...... I've just got this Maya Road Steel Die this week, HO!HO!HO! There are coming a few new dies from Maya Road, this leave shape is one of those, I am dying with this die because of its exceptional, can't wait to use it on this project. It is so trendy but very useful on all style of scrapbooking projects, you want one too? Stay tuned for the news!
