Paper Crafting Blog hop continued Happy Thanksgiving!

     Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! May you have a bless ed day and as I have seen mentioned, Thanksgiving is not a day but a lifestyle.  So if you live in the USA and are celebrating Thanksgiving Day or you live in another country that doesn't celebrate; be thankful for everyone and everything.  I'm thankful for creativity and that I can share it with you and it helps me to celebrate Christ's love.  I'm also thankful for my family that I will be spending it with and the ones that are spending it elsewhere.  And the firefighters that are working today so I made them a corn casserole.

     Now I'll share the instructions for the Christmas card ornament that I shared with you yesterday.  Here is the picture of the card for reference:

  1. Cut Poppy Parade cardstock in half to get card base of 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold to be 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".
  2. Cut Whisper White cardstock to 3" strip and using 2 3/4" stitched square die cut, die cut it.  Then cut a strip out of the rest of the strip to be 2 3/4" x 1".
  3. Cut Shaded Spruce cardstock to 3" x 3" and another to 3" x 1 1/4".

  4. Use wreath template on stamparatus for Whisper White CS stitched square size.  (I sponged the edges of the die cut template in the acrylic sheet so you could see it.)

        5. Place Poinsetta stamp at half way mark at top of white square and pick up with clear plate.    Ink with Poppy Parade ink and stamp.

          6. Rotate White CS to diamond position and ink and stamp poinsetta.

          7. Rotate White CS to next station, ink stamp and stamp.  Repeat all the way around the wreath.
          8. Use Wink of Stella pen to color berries on poinsettas.  Sponge edges of square with Shaded Spruce.  Adhere to 3" Shaded Spruce square.
          9. Stamp sentiment in Poppy Parade on 1" White CS strip. Sponge with Shaded Spruce and adhere to Shaded Spruce CS strip.
         10. Using glue dots, loop ribbon and adhere to back of 3" Shaded Spruce square at top with loop in center and ribbon hanging down the center of the square.  Leaving some ribbon showing, adhere 1 1/4" Shaded Spruce strip and cut off excess at bottom.
         11. Adhere whole ribbon object to front of Poppy Parade card base front.

TADA you've got a Christmas card that can be used as an ornament.
