“Christmas Ornament in a Box” by Kirsten Hyde

I have created a few Christmas projects this autumn. My favourite is probably one of my Christmas ornaments. I do like to create these ornaments, and I often create a few different ones every Christmas. This one has a little glitter house church inside.

KAISERCRAFT - CHRISTMAS WISHES - GLITTER HOUSE - PUTZ HOUSE - PAPER HOUSE - SNOW GLOBE - CHRISTMAS SCENE - CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT - KIRSTEN HYDE - MYHYDEAWAY - 6

The ornament has been put on a base, so it can be shown on the base or hang on the tree or in the window.

‘Believe’ scrapbook layout by Terhi Koskinen

I decided to choose this to my very favorite Chirtsmas layout, as I loved drawing the deer head! It was easy and very fun, just first drawed the outlines through the template and then added lots of smaller lines to make more hand draw look. Try it, it’s so much fun!

‘Joy’ Card by Collette Mitrega

dsc_0556-2

Tips & Tricks:

I pulled the Coconut Paper Blooms apart to create my white petal flower base.

I re-shaped the assorted paper leaves to look like holly.

I pulled the twig and Berry embellishment apart and used various elements on the card including the berries and vine.

I poked cheesecloth into any gaps.

I gold embossed the little wooden flourishes.

I splattered the card with Kaisercraft white paint using a small fan brush.

Hope you like my card and I hope you can use some of these tips!

‘Sparkle’ Layout by Collette Mitrega

Hi Kaisercrafters :-) 

I have had such fun playing with the ‘Glisten’ collection.

To make the beautiful oversized bauble, I used Kaisercrafts Ornamental template and applied texture paste onto gold glitter card. While still wet, I sprinkled from on high, ( I felt like a master chef!!!),  some shimmery glitter and then fixed it with a fixative spray. I then cut it out and attached it with Foam tape!
