Christmas String Art

Christmas card made using the Petite Pennants PunchOne way to keep paper crafting new and exciting is to use other materials with our paper.  For this project I wrapped some of our Baker's Twine around a scallop image.  Doesn't it kind of look like a garland around a Christmas Tree?

Christmas card made using the Petite Pennants PunchPunches sure do make life easier! The Petite Pennant Punch has 2 shapes, one with smooth edges and one with a scallop edge.  The scallop edge shape is just perfect for working with string. And punching it out of the Champagne Glimmer paper really gives a special sparkle to the whole card.

Do you send handmade Christmas greetings?  If so this card is pretty easy to make.  The trees are punched from Lucky Limeade Designer Paper, except for the glimmer tree.  The background was pressure embossed with the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder using the Big Shot machine. I used a piece of River Rock for the framing layer.  I did try the brighter green for the border, but it seemed to detract from the trees as the main element - I like this more subtle border better. The sentiment is from a stamp set called More Merry Messages.  

This design would be easy to mass produce.  If you've never done a project on a large scale - making lots of the same card - then be sure to check out the "Rules for Mass Production" for a little guidance on making the project go smoothly.

This design could easily be changed to fit what you already have.  I think the key is the Pennant Punch and the Glimmer Paper.
