Christmas Heart Frame and Days 6 & 7 Advent Village


I found these gorgeous Christmas tree decorations in my local supermarket and I thought they would look fabulous on a card.  The recipient could then put the decoration on their tree next year - or this year if they're that impatient!  I've just used foam dots to secure it to the front of the card, and a little bit of tape to secure the cord to the back of the card.  The words are from an old Stampendous set.

I'm entering this into City Crafters where the challenge is to use wood or a frame:


I've done a faux woodgrain background, the ornament is wooden, and it's also a heart-shaped frame.

I'm also entering it into CASology where this week's cue word is ribbon:


If you look at the frame, there's a red ribbon bow at the top.

And I'm also entering it into Curtain Call where the curtain is still up on the Christmas Countdown challenge.

Here are the advent village houses for days 6 and 7.

  5. The stamped sentiment around the perimeter of the card is sooooo pretty! Love the 'doodled' look of the font!

    This really is a fantastic way to present the Christmas ornament as a gift! I love the sparkle....can you image an entire tree dressed up with these pretty dazzling beauties!

    I'm really enjoying seeing the up close pics of your village. Love all the little details!
