WMS Christmas Blog Waltz



Here is my offering for the Waltz.....
Base cardstock is from the Papermill and the green cardstock layer is also from the same source and it is the leather type of card. The cream layer is The Papermill linen and I've stamped the Merry Christmas stamp from that Secret Set. Attached a length of ribbon down the centre of the top layer and then stamped the star from the same set into gold UTEE...the impression came out well. As UTEE can be sort of dull I took the Krylon pen and put on 2 layers of gold to brighten it up. When still warm I cut around the outline and discovered the shape was close to the Spellbinders Hexagon! Made another red layer and edged it with a gold Krylon pen....a little bit of red bling in the centre...pop dotted the UTEE layer to the red layer....the edges needed to be streamlined a bit so a little bit of wired gold cord did the trick...just used double-sided tape around the edge and pressed the gold cord unto it. Then added the little knot of ribbon to cover the joining of the cord. Apart from the 'Stars' set this was the only WMS Christmas set I had to work with!
