Elzybells Challenge #8

Have you ever bought a piece of paper and just could not cut it to save your life? Nobody could possibly be worthy of this gorgeous piece of paper!

Well for this project I had just the piece of paper. I bought it last year and could not cut it, I was saving it for>>> who knows. That was until this challenge.

The numbered paper is a 12x12 piece by Making Memories, at the top of each number I slit them with a knife, and then carefully glued all the way around each square outline. I mounted this onto a piece of picture board 12x16. At the bottom, I put a 4" strip of sage paper, then layered ontop a piece of red patterned paper. I then added the Elzybell sleigh, stamped in brillance, Graphite Black. This was coloured with COPICS, and then run face down into my Xyron, to put the adhesive on the coloured side. I then dipped the image in warm highlight ultra fine glitter. It is so sparkly and lovely in real life. Hard to tell from the picture.

Days Until (wasabi green SU), and Christmas (red poppy PTI), were both stamped using JustRite Trompe, and Brayton fonts.

Punches, large Marvey snowflake, and MS snowflake layered on top. These snowflakes are both the decrative in the bottom left, as well as used for the date marker on the lower right.

The date marker, was 2 large snowflakes punched out with a paper clip sandwhiched in between and glued with tombow. Then glittered and the 2 MS snowflake added on top.
The date marker is moved from one date to another simply by putting the paper clip into the slots I made with my knife at the beginning of the process.

It is such a cute and fun project for kids to use to help count how many sleeps until Santa comes! wink!
Have a Merry and Bright Day!
