DOH! DD informed me that the advent calendars I’ve already made aren’t Christmassy enough – I’m not a big fan of the traditional red and green shades, so one is hot pink glitter, burgundy and lime with a lot of white and the other one is very vintage, with lots of brown. So I really loved the look of the Gelli pulls over gold embossing, and I selected a couple of stencils that show thru the embossing nicely – all circles, to unify them. I also still have a few of the gold embellishments from the last advent calendar I can use – DD did like them. Phew!
Really, how could she NOT like that??
Anyway, I have at least a couple ready but will have to sneak in a few when I get the chance in order to have them ready each day – like I need THAT pressure. Here is a glimpse. They are tags, fairly simple, and attach to a strand of creamy pearls with a clothes peg:
I always opt for a grungy sort of font with anything Gelli, as I think it suits the style better, but I am not 100% happy with these. Now I’m thinking maybe a black stencil surround? Maybe I’ll have time to play tomorrow and see. Oh and it may not look it but that dark flower is really a forest green, not black!
The treat goes in a match box stuck to the back of the tag
Hope she likes this one better – I’ll know tomorrow….
