Sweet Anticipation Of Christmas

Octobers, Crafts Too Challenge You #4 starts today with a new main theme which is Christmas Festivities.

Don’t forget that we have two different twists for the theme over the month and the first is – Create/Depict a Scene. This could be indoors, outdoors, through a window whatever you like.

My scene is this sweet image of three little girls waiting for Christmas which I printed onto a rectangle of cream material.

Covered a piece of white material with molding paste before cutting with a die, then stitched everything together.

Such an apt sentiment for Christmas time which was stamped and then white embossed.

The beautiful Crafts-Too die is called Flourish Tree which was cut with cardstock then covered with paste to look like frozen snow.
