Jingle Banner

Do you ever create one of those projects that makes you happy. When it's completed you feel a sense of accomplishment and so proud of your creative abilities. This is one of those projects for me.

I tend to do my best work when I create for others. When I have a specific person in mind and want them to have something one of a kind, those projects become my favorites. Who was in mind for this festive Jingle Banner? My mom of course!

I used some older tags from a tag book that Close To My Heart sold. The white base is from the Top Note sizzix die. The "jingle" letters and snowflakes were cut from the Cricut AP cartridge. I added several different types of ribbon & twine.

You have to add some bells for a "jingle" banner!

So difficult to capture through photography, but the base of the tags are sprayed with some shimmer paint and there is a bit of glitter glue flakes in the center of the white snowflakes.

I placed it in some cute packaging to mail it off to her!

Also, while my mom was visiting in November we sat down one day to create her Christmas cards. She wanted something with snowflakes and unique, hence the pink and brown color combination.

Amy, this is so wonderful. I might try to create one if I can squeeze it in! I love your card as well. Beautiful work. The art I always create for my Mom is a calendar each year - it's the only thing she asks for from me for Christmas! Thank you so much for sharing.
