The theme of our 2nd SCS Event is "Jingle All The Way" so I decided to use it in my ATC. There are 10 people in the swap so it wasn't too bad making them.
The cardstock is SU Cherry Cobbler cut 3 1/2 X 2 1/2, Night of Navy & Basic Black cut 3 3/8 X 2 3/8. The free printable Jingle Bell music was resized to 3 1/2 X 2 1/2, printed on SU Whisper White CS & trimmed to fit the black.
The sentiment from SU's Jingle All the Way set was done in 2 steps using my mini misti because it is one stamp & I could bear cutting it in half. I inked "jingle" with a Versamark pen, embossed it in WOW White EP then moved the stamp & repeated the step with "all the way". Even though I did "jingle" for all 10 then moved onto "all the way", it was still a little time consuming but I like the look plus then the stamp fit portrait style.
I placed the sheet music over the black CS leaving enough room for the sleigh & horse from SU's Sleigh Ride Edgelit at the top. After die cutting, I used the impression left by the die on the sheet music as a guide to hand trim it to match the curve of the cut. I distressed around the edges of the music with frayed burlap ink.
I sprayed the Night of Navy & Basic Black layers with Ttsukineko Shimmer Frost & Sparkle Spritz for a snowy effect. After adhering the music to the black, I trimmed off the bottom after the 3rd line of the sheet music. After that layer was adhered to the navy, I wound natural twine thread around it & tied on a rusty bell before adhering it to the base.
Hope you enjoyed my ATC swap project! TFL!
