Quilled Nativity OrnamentAs promised, this is my throwback post. This ornament always makes me happy, I should make one for myself (I mean my children, so that way I can hang it on my tree until they are old enough to have their own tree). I love the way the colors work together and the fact that I had quilling paper that matched the paper I used!
Quick instructions.... I cut the nativity from my Silhouette Cameo cutting machine. The image is one I purchased during one of their many sales.
The color combination was accidental. I am sure I am not the only person who does this, lol... I pulled out more than one color cardstock (I mean, can you really know what colors you might need?) I cut the image from a few different colors, and as I peeled them off I placed them on the table I was working on, as luck would have it, I happened to place this one on a purple piece of scrap paper. As I laid it down, I was struck by the color combination and thought how nice they looked together, so I did what anyone would have done.....
I pulled out my cuttlebug and whipped out my Spellbinders dies and tracked down my purple paper and cut an Oval and then layered that over a double sided paper that had that antiqued cream look to tie back in the image that I cut with my largest Lacy Oval die.
Since, no project is complete without glitter, I added glitter to the purple oval and then glued down the nativity. I had my quilling supplies out and added a quick quilled element (we can call it a flower maybe - lol)... pulled out some pearls and added them as well.
My regret is not making more than one. Of course, I am usually up quite late and then very early during this time of year trying to get all those projects I wait until now to start, so I am lucky to have completed even one of them, lol. Are you like me, lots of plans and thoughts, but need the pressure of a deadline to get your juices flowing?
