Happy Christmas Eve! I wanted to share one last little Christmas project with you….this is my gift for my sister. We aren’t supposed to exchange gifts, but she is a great yard-saler and thrift-shop-junkie, and always manages to find me a treat here or there, so I just used some goodies I had laying around to make her a little vintage scene. It was inspired by this post at Glue Arts and instead of stamping and making clay figures, I used some vintage images that I had (since I seem to collect them by the thousands and just look at them instead of using them!) along with some other little goodies sprinkled with a good dose of glitter:
This little girl just reminds me of Cassidy with that little look on her face! The sentiment at the bottom of the card says “Did you hear anything in the chimney?” So cute! I used lots of hot glue on this creation, and getting the mica flakes to stick on the styrofoam was a challenge….I used spray glue, patted the flakes on, then sprayed the entire thing again with a matte finish. It seems to not be “shedding” too much! It also was a little top-heavy, so I used a SU chipboard scallop adhered to my vintage spool on the bottom, and that gave it a good base. I hope she likes it!
Thank you to everyone who has sent me beautiful hand-made cards this year! Cassidy thanks you too—the envelopes are her favorite part!
