A Holiday Project and Card

Happy Almost Friday!!!

Hope your Thursday is off to a great start! I have a couple crafting projects to finish up but other than that, today should be a quiet day. Looking forward to that!

I have two projects to share with you today. The first is a hand made luminary. I had a lot of fun making this, well other than the trouble cutting through multiple pieces of paper with the Cuttlebug, but it worked out in the end.

I created this for my work at Paper Maniac. All month long the team has been sharing different holiday decor and project ideas. I actually got this idea from my friend Janna, but simplified my luminary. I've used one piece of card stock cut to 6 x 11 inches and scored at 3.5, 7, and 10.5 inches. I've decorated with more card stock and some designer paper. I stamped a reindeer from Layers of Color on the vellum and attached it to the inside of the luminary. Then just folded into a triangle shape and glued it together. I embellished with Prima flowers.

Next I have a card to share using a new Doodle Palace image called Holiday Mail. I've paired this fun image with some BasicGrey Eskimo Kisses paper and SU! card stock.

I've colored with Copics and added some Spica glitter pen highlights and faux snow with some glitter and glue. The layout is from this week's Inspirational Card Sketches challenge. I embellished with some sticky rhinestones, a felt snowflake, ribbon, and a button. This card also fits the "Four Seasons" challenge at Secret Crafter and the use a digi image challenge at Cupcake Craft.

Thanks for dropping on by today, hope you have a great day! Happy stamping! :)
