The Reason for the Season

Hello my friends,

I have a project share today that I really do love.  I made it as my "Secret Santa" gift for our TDS Team Meeting this past weekend.  I love seeing the girls on our Trinity Design Stampers team and just having time to enjoy each others company.  We had our Christmas  Celebration early since we don't have a meeting in December.  Here's what I made....

I was thrilled with the way it turned out and I was even more thrilled that my friend and upline, Robin, was the one who received it.  I'd like to take credit for creating the awesome subway art with the scripture but I can't.  I found it online when I googled "Christmas Subway Art".  I do, however, plan on creating some of my own designs using MDS2.  :-)

I started with a simple wood frame from the craft store (for $1.00!!)  I then used Tombow adhesive glue to adhere the gorgeous Designer Series Paper to the front.  This particular pattern is from the "Candlelight Christmas" Designer Series Paper Pack #126901.  I inked the edges and the back of the frame with Early Espresso ink for a more "finished" look.  I then stamped a few of the ornaments from the "Ornament Keepsakes" stamp set with Versamark ink and embossed them with White Embossing Powder to make the "pop".  I then cut them out using the handy dandy "Holiday Ornaments" Framelit Dies for the Big Shot.  SUPER easy!

I added the strip of Very Vanilla card stock stamped with the "Merry Christmas" greeting from the "Greetings of the Season" stamp set in Early Espresso ink to match.  I tied it all together with the Cherry Cobbler Scalloped Tulle.  I hope that Robin and her family enjoy it for many, many Christmases to come.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit today!

Stamped blessings,
