Good morning! Today's 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge is anything, but a card, tag, or ATC. I love making these altered notebooks so for today's challenge I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I posted a tutorial awhile ago about how I make these so if you would like to see my tutorial you will find it here.
In that tutorial you will see how I cover my notebook with designer series paper and how I fill the pen with matching paper. To complete my notebook I used the Label Framelits for the layers behind the ornaments. The gumball green and very vanilla layers were dry embossed using my square lattice embossing folder.
The ornaments were stamped and punched out using my ornament punch. I did use a 3/4" circle punch for the image in the center of the raspberry ripple ornament. I used dimensionals to raise up the ornaments. Each ornament has a rhinestone jewel on it and I tied some twine around the top of the one gumball green ornament.
I decided to stamp the 'memories' sentiment and it is layered using oval punches. I tied the sentiment onto my ribbon using twine and it's finished off with a bow.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Be sure to visit the other 52 Christmas Card throwdown design team member's blogs and see what they've created!
