This little project started out as a lollipop card. Then I got to thinking …. what on earth was I gonna do with a lollipop card?? Soooo, it morphed into a Christmas ornament instead. Ah that’s much better, at least this way it’ll get some use.
I die cut the base from the Double Scallop Doily Die – Circle from Whimsy Stamps. I then made a rosette from two strips of gingham paper (2.25” x 12”), scored every centimetre and accordion folded them and glued them together to make a circle which I flattened and glued this on to the doily using a hot glue gun.
I then layered up another doily and some patterned paper from the Christmas Cheer paper pad and adhered that in the centre using foam pads for extra dimension. I stamped out the little gingerbread girl from the Meet me under the mistletoe stamp set and coloured it up with copic markers. She got some puffy and glittery “icing” using a snow writer.
I finished it off with the obligatory flowers and a couple of tassels made using some left over paper scraps. I didn’t have any gold thingamabobs for the top of the tassels so I punched out a couple of small daisies from gold paper, cupped them using a ball tool and glued them on top. Cheap – as in free (me likey), super quick and the perfect colour.
I had such fun making this, I’m going to do a few more for the tree.
