This is a special project I made to display on my mantle for Christmas and to represent the true meaning of Christmas. These are paper mache letters from Hobby Lobby. I painted them ivory color, chose different DSP, My Mind's Eye - green and holly print, and the red music paper is from a Recollections Christmas pad. I traced the letters backwards on the back of the papers, and fussy cut them out. The nativity scene is cut with my Silhouette twice and layered together for sturdiness. I painted over the letters with Americana DuraClean Satin Varnish to seal them. The sentiment from SU Reason for the Season set is stamped on SU Very Vanilla and punched with a 2" circle punch. It is mounted on a gold foil MFT doily die (discontinued). The poinsettias are made with MFT Poinsettia die from MFT Electric Red CS. I added a large glittery enamel dot by The Paper Studio to the centers. The leaves are from a Christmas pick from the Dollar Tree.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day and a very
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
