Here we are on Day 6 of the Advent calendar that my friend, Elly, from the UK and I designed during her visit in October using a 24 cup mini muffin pan. Throughout December I will share one each day with a brief description of each.
You will want to open each post, as there will be a little treat behind each one! Some days it might be some virtual ‘candy’ or sweeties as we call them in the UK, other times it might be a card, 3D project or a video!
Each of the squares start with a 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 inch base with 4 little magnets stuck to the back with glue dots. The primary colors are Real Red, Old Olive, Smoky Slate and Soft Sky. Ink Colors included those above, plus two neutrals of Tip Top Taupe and Early Expresso.
This square uses a base of Old Olive card then 2 x 2 of Whisper White. The little ‘dotty’ background and the ornaments are from the ‘Merriest Wishes’ Stamp Set cut with a 1″ and 1 3/8 Circle punches.
The dots where stamped in Tip Top Taupe but ‘stamped off’ before adding to the card. The gem in the middle is a large rhinestone colored with a red Sharpie pen. (I bought a set of 21 for about $12 so I can create a gem in most any color I might need)
Todays virtual treat is:
I like they put ‘low fat snack’ on the packet!
