Christmas Swag

I fell in love (as did many of you, I'm sure) with the November release at Papertrey Ink, in particular her banner stamps and dies. What an easy and creative way to make this popular decorative item. I kept my first one pretty simple and just wanted to share it with you. I used SU Kraft and K & Co. Glad Tidings DP. The snippet of music paper was a single sheet I picked up somewhere ages ago. The large rosette was made with the Tim Holtz die and the smaller ones were also K & Co. The letters that spell out Christmas I got at Michaels, pre glittered. I had no place in my studio to photograph the complete swag because my studio is in a state of pre-Christmas chaos so the pics were the best I could do. You'll get the idea I'm sure. Remember to click to enlarge to see detail closer. Enjoy!
