Showcase your Christmas image

Good afternoon fellow bloggers and visitors.

I hope your week is going well so far. It's Been an ok week for me , my friends here and he's bought his dog so I've got there cats and a dog here so just a bit hectic. Plus been in more pain than usual but apart from that all is going well.

Thank you all for your comments on my previous posts. You are all so kind and I promise ill do a blog hop layer today to view your blogs. I can't keep away for too long I miss it too much lol.

This project I made on Monday but haven't had time to post it until now. It's a Christmas themed project and a great way to showcase your coloured images or any gorgeous toppers you want to put on full view. The topper itself stands up on its own by inserting it into a a kind of box made especially to keep it standing upright.

Front side of the Project :


Other side of project;



I made the project base by following the tutorial from this website: Free standing image Tutorial.

It's a beautiful project and easy to make. It also folds flat for easy storage or to insert into an envelope to post for Christmas. It's unique and different.

Side view:



Materials used:

Once again hunkydory plain card stock for base of projects.

Lace which I've had in my stash now for over 7 months which I'd just found whilst looking and cleaning my craft stock.

Topper from hunkydory Christmas kit

The image I coloured in using my pro markers was from a company called Inky Impressions which I won from being a winner for a challenge.

Sentiments from the same hunkydory kit

Borders from my stash - Christmas themed then punched with my X Cut punch

Gold mirrored flower buds from Kanban which were die cut and to quill them around a quilling tool to create a flower bud

Ribbon from last year which again I found during my clear out.

Sakura gold glitter pen for my digi image

Flower soft snow drift for the snow on my digi image.

Snowflake die cuts from spellbinders

Foliage die cut from Joy dies

  1. Love this project, how very clever, I expect you have been overdoing things so hopefully you will start to feel a bit better soon. You have put so much lovely detail into this, I have been copying things into word so that I can see the detail better, I do wonder which bit of me FM will pick on next. Sending crafty hugs. xx Flora

  19. Great project. Thank you for playing along with the High Hopes Challenge - unfortunately, you didn't use a High Hopes stamp so it doesn't qualify for the challenge. The challenge runs through Monday so you still have time if you would like to enter again using a High Hopes Stamp.
