My project today features the Flourishes “All That Glitters” set.  The stamp I chose to play with is the beautiful bird ornament image.

Because of the delicate detailing on the different ornament images in this set, I think they are very flexible as to how you can use them.  Here I have simply stamped and heat embossed in gold on red card stock.  But these images could completely lend themselves to coloring from just a little to as elaborate as one desired.

At Christmastime gift wrapping at our house generally takes place in the room where all of the ribbons, bows, tags and wrapping papers are stored.  I thought that it would be fun to have a warning for the door for those times when everyone really must stay out!

Now that my youngest is 17, something like this might actually work!  I wouldn’t have counted on it years ago, though.  In fact this would have probably had just the opposite effect!  “Oh look, Mom’s wrapping our gifts.  Let’s go help”  *chuckle*

To start I used Mod Podge on a chipboard door hanger.  I adhered this GORGEOUS Glittering Christmas paper to the hanger and then Mod Podged again right over the top of it.  The result was wonderful because the glitter still showed, but it was now permanently sealed to the paper instead of getting all over everything everywhere!

I used my Circle and Scalloped Circle Die Cut Nestabilities to cut and make the holly and scalloped rings around the hole for the door handle.  The holly ring image is from the new JustRite “Christmas Stamp Ensemble”.  The lettering is from two different JustRite Fonts “Curlz” 50 pt. size and “Times Roman” 50 and 95 pt. size.  May Arts velvet ribbon and lots of Kaiser rhinestones along with some gold cording and a miniature bow (store bought.. sh-h-h-h-h don’t tell anyone) finish out the project.

Oh yes and the box…  I made the box with PTI white card stock and adhered strips of the Glittering Christmas paper to the top and sides.  I love this little functional box.  It measures approximately 1-1/2″ X 2-1/2″ and is the same-ish size as the metal tag/frame on my yesterday’s “Sleigh Ride” card.  I am putting together a template and tutorial for it and hope to have it ready to share in a few days.
